Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Deerfield District Curriculum
The district emphasizes the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language which guide the Common Core Standards. These standards call for students to read closely, recognize ideas or themes, analyze the structure of texts, and assess the point of view or purpose of a text. The writing curriculum requires that students write informative and analytic essays that are well-supported and use the language appropriately.
Frontier and Union 38 use Google Apps for Education as powerful collaboration tools for students. They allow students to communicate in real time, engage in peer feedback, access and work on projects from any location with an Internet connection, and have unlimited access to storage space for their work. Students have access to Chromebooks, which are specifically designed to work with Google Apps for Education. The apps include Google Drive (students can create, store, and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations), Calendar, Contacts, Sites (students can create websites), and Mail (for students in seventh grade and up).
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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.
Keeping Informed: Recent Deerfield Educational News
- Frontier Regional Raises Awareness of Progeria - At Frontier Regional, students wore headwear in support of the "Hats Off to Progeria" campaign and donned purple--the official color of the Progeria Research Foundation.

The goal of the campaign was to raise $200,000 for and awareness of Progeria.
- Frontier Regional Union 38 Increase Professional Development - The Frontier Regional and Union 38 school districts announced that 30 Fridays will end 90 minutes earlier than usual for students during the 2015-16 school year. The teachers will use the additional time for professional development and to work on the curriculum. A particular focus will be on training the teachers on how to implement technology in their classrooms effectively. Specifically, they will be taught how to work with Chromebooks and Google Apps.
- Alumni Honor Retiring Frontier Regional Band Director - In 2015, band director Karen Atherton, or "Mrs. A.," directed her final spring concert, as she would retire after 28 years at Frontier Regional. She had no idea, however, that 50 of her former students had traveled across the country to honor her on her special night. A senior who had been taught by Mrs. A. since he had been in seventh grade organized the surprise, reaching out to the alumni. Mrs. Atherton staunchly defended music and the arts, offered free music lessons before and during school, influenced many of her students to go on to pursue music, and even taught the non-musically trained principal how to be a conductor.
Chalk Talk: Commonly Confused Words
It can be easy for students to mix up commonly confused words. "Aloud" and "allowed" are commonly confused; the former means speaking something out loud so that it is heard (reading a book ALOUD), while the latter is another word for permission (being ALLOWED to go to the movies). Students often forget when to use "among" and "between"; between refers to two things, while among is used in terms of three or more things. "Assure" means to make certain that something will happen (another word is "reassure"), ensure means to double-check that something will happen, and "insure" is to provide with insurance (such as car insurance). One more: "Beside" and "besides" may be used incorrectly. Beside means to be next to something or someone; besides means "apart from."
