Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Denham Springs District Curriculum
The Livingston Parish Public School system uses the Common Core Curriculum as approved by the State of Louisiana as the standard for coursework in the areas of Mathematics and English and Language Arts (ELA). In ELA, students focus on learning the English language through learning to read, write, speak and listen. The curriculum is progressive with students building on their skills grade by grade. Reading material includes both informational text and literature preparing students for the types of reading they may encounter on the job or in college. Students are expected to develop critical analysis skills in addition to be able to recognize the purpose of each text.
In Mathematics, students learn a finite number of core math subjects including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, statistics and measurement. The goal is for students to be math literate by the time they graduate high school with the ability to apply what they have learned to higher math and to develop necessary quantitative and logical reasoning skills.
