Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Lansing District Curriculum
The district has built its K-6 curriculum on the principles of foundational learning as building blocks for more complex studies. Students should gain skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and numerical operations. These basic skills help students comprehend instruction in social studies, sciences, English language arts, mathematics, music, visual arts, and physical education. Technology is integrated into most facets of curriculum to provide students with 21st century skills.
As students enter seventh grade and continue on to high school, they receive instruction that is more specialized and advanced. Students in middle school have access to developmentally appropriate courses in English language arts, sciences, social studies, and mathematics. Middle school electives include many courses in the following departments: visual and performing arts, music, computers, foreign languages, media, physical education, and technology. The high school curriculum consists of the aforementioned departments, with many more options to prepare them for post-secondary education and/or work.

Residents of the City of East Lansing will attend East Lansing Public Schools (ELPS). The district provides residents with a Developmental Kindergarten program for students who may not be prepared for a traditional kindergarten setting. The ELPS adhere to the Michigan Department of Education’s (MDE) guidelines for instruction, along with the Michigan Common Core State Standards (MICCSS), a state implementation of the federal Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These new curricular benchmarks focus on sequential grade-level preparation, as well as college and/or career readiness.

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: How to Decide Whether to Redshirt Your Kindergartener
Redshirting, in academia, refers to keeping children from entering kindergarten for an additional year than their eligibility indicates. Many reasons exist for this, but the most common cause for redshirting is having a late birthday. Many parents fear that their children will struggle if they are among the youngest in their classes. Parents may also be anxious about their children’s kindergarten readiness. In kindergarten, students need to follow directions, act socially appropriate, and meet certain academic milestones. But does age have to do with these criteria? It is difficult to say, as research regarding this subject is inconclusive. There are a few tips for parents, however, to reach a satisfactory decision concerning redshirting. First, it is vital that parents treat their children as individuals, regardless of age or gender, when making this decision. Having conversations with potential kindergarten teachers or past preschool teachers can also help gain insight into a child’s readiness. Whatever the decision, it is important to be informed, honest, and confident. A child’s first impression of school may affect performance, and children often gain impressions through their parents.
