Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Federal Way District Curriculum
Federal Way Public Schools is also implementing the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. The structure of the standards is similar to the English Language Arts Standards in that if follows strands throughout the student’s K-12 education. Student strands followed are Algebra (expressions, equalities, inequalities and basic functions), Number Systems (counting and number systems) and Functions (interpreting, building, trig and linear). Students still take Algebra, Geometry and Algebra 2, but the way in which the new standards are taught changes scope in some of the classes.
Science content standards stay in place as the Common Core is implemented. What changes is the way these standards are taught. More emphasis is placed on reading and analyzing in science and technology. Students are required to take Biology in their ninth or tenth grade year, and any other science of their choice after taking Biology. Students are required to take two years of lab sciences for graduation from the district and four years if they plan on attending college after high school.

Federal Way District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Federal Way Public Schools are beginning to implement two new learning and curriculum structures to their schools: Standards Based Education and Common Core State Standards. These two new ways of thinking about education will allow students to build on prior knowledge, increase critical thinking skills, and be better prepared for life after high school. The district currently is in the process of a three-year phase in plan, culminating in the 2014-2015 school year. Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts follows strands of learning throughout the student’s educational career. Students focus on reading and analyzing literary and informational texts, language, writing, speaking, and listening.
We currently cover the following Federal Way-area school district: Federal Way Public Schools.

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.

Chalk Talk: Parent-Teacher Conferences
Parent-Teacher Conferences are a time for both parties to open up a conversation about someone special, the student/child. To help prepare for this time parents need to think about what they would like to come away from this time knowing. If there are questions about Common Core or about standard tests, this would be the time to bring them up. The teacher may have some good insights on the topics, if not they will know where to send the parents for their answers. This is also a good opportunity to see if the teacher has ideas on how the parents can help the student at home. Perhaps the student has problems with reading comprehension, the teacher can suggest some ideas to help. It is always best to begin the conferences with positive outlooks. It would be a time to talk about how the student enjoys certain aspects of the class. Then parents can ask questions about the child performance. Finally, make sure to thank the teacher for the work they are doing and for any positives that you have seen in her performance in the classroom.
