Elyria District and Curriculum
In Elyria City Schools, parents may choose to enroll their children in any city school which is called intradistrict choice. Several schools exceed student growth expectations and a rigorous, relevant curriculum with advanced technology tools prepare students for interacting effectively in the 21st century. The district is currently transitioning to Ohio’s New Learning Standards in Reading and Mathematics which is a set of standards to provide the fundamentals skills in grades K-12 to attain common core concepts. Preparing students with sufficient skills to succeed in school and to be college and career ready is the aim of the Common Core State Standards.
We currently cover the following Elyria-area school district: Elyria City Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elyria District Curriculum
In Math, the standards include practices for making sense of problems and solving them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, modeling, using appropriate tools, seeking precise answers, looking for and making use of structure and mathematic reasoning. These eight practices are research based and provide the basis for the standards for students to master in mathematical operations.
In English/Language Arts, students must learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language proficiently using a variety of literature, trade books, magazines, and many other types of material. They must also understand what they read, be able to evaluate the material, and be able to apply skills in reading and writing. Being able to read, write, speak, and listen with proficiency are the fundamental building blocks for creative and purposeful expression in language.

Keeping Informed: Recent Elyria Educational News
- Bring Your Own Device Day - Ely Elementary Fifth Grade students are piloting an innovative concept in the use of technology—bringing their own devices to use at the school. Students may bring their own personal computers, I-pods, smart phones, I-pads, or any other device to connect to the world wide web. These may be used in class as instructional tools as facilitated by the teacher. These devices are being used more as learning tools even out of school, rather than just for entertainment purposes. The project helps the school’s existing technology tools go further and has a positive impact on the environment by saving paper for instruction.
- COSI on Wheels - To reinforce Science skills and to give students learning opportunities and experiences, COSI on Wheels Columbus Ohio’s Center of Science and Industry, visited Franklin Elementary recently. After instruction by the COSI on Wheels staff, students were able to design their own water turbines, choosing from a selection of blades. Students then tested the power and lift of the chosen blades. One team’s water turbine won the competition by lifting their bucket further and faster than the other team.
- Students Against Bullying - Bullying is not to be tolerated was the message that the Elyria High School group “Students Against Bullying” wanted to communicate with their 100 balloon launch.

This group wants to help raise awareness of bullying and join the growing movement in schools across the nation that seek to change such behaviors.

Chalk Talk: How to Use Comparative/Superlative Forms Correctly
When comparing items the comparative form using the words “less” or “more” or the suffix “-er” when the comparison contains two items or people. The superlative form using words “most” or “least” or the suffix “-est” should be used when comparing three or more items. An example would be: Comparative: John is taller than Eric. Superlative: John is the tallest one of the quartet.
