Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cottonwood District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts, the curriculum is designed to enable students to gain the skills needed in reading, writing and listening, developing critical thinking and comprehension skills. Writing has become a key component of the curriculum, emphasizing academic writing skills such as organizing key ideas and awareness to tone and voice. Students are also expected to learn the language skills and ways to understand word meanings needed to navigate the world after graduation.
In Mathematics, the curriculum is designed to be more concentrated and with a more concentrated and stronger design that stresses operations properties such as place value, as well as teaching the ability to restructure properties and organize the principals involved. Students will constantly return to the principles and problem-solving processes they have learned so that they can keep building to higher math skills.

Cottonwood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Arizona’s College and Career Ready curriculum program is used by schools across the state, keeping in mind the skills that students will need when they graduate from high school. With the globalization of the workforce, students need to be able to compete for their desired careers and to draw upon a range of academic and technical skills. It is also important for students to be ready academically to enter college. With that in mind, Cottonwood schools ensure a curriculum strictly aligned with national and Arizona’s state standards.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Implementing New Curriculum
There will come times when administrators need to make changes to curriculum that is currently being used. If administrators want things to run more smoothly with the whole process of designing and implementing the new program they need to ensure that teachers who will be affected by the changes take part in the curriculum design. By allowing the teachers to play an active role they will feel ownership and be more willing to successfully implement the curriculum. Additionally, keeping parents and families involved in the process helps to reinforce the broader goals of the curriculum outside of school. As with the implementation of the Common Core Standards, when a major change occurs in a district it effects all the stakeholders and all possible information pertaining to those changes should be available.
