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.

Keeping Informed: Recent Federal Way Educational News

  • G.A.T.E. - Students are able to test into the Gifted and Talented Education (G.A.T.E.) program starting in elementary school and are able to stay in the program through high school graduation. Students are placed into the G.A.T.E. program based on advanced skills in five areas: spatial, accelerated, cognitive, under-achieving gifted, and leadership. While in the program, students will learn all state standards at appropriate grade levels and they will build a portfolio based on their strengths simultaneously. At the high school level, students are eligible for Pre-Advanced Placement and Advanced Placement (AP) courses.
  • Cambridge Academy Program - This program offers the students to take classes that will prepare them for Cambridge University after graduation. Classes and teachers not only focus on the adopted standards of the state, but also independent search and investigation and creativity among students. Middle school students who show academic skills necessary are given the opportunity to work through the checkpoint program that prepares them to enter the Cambridge Academy Program in high school.
  • Choice Enrollment - Students and families in the Federal Way Public School system have the opportunity to attend any school in the district even if it is outside their normal attendance area. Families are required to spend a minimum of one year at their school of choice, and may return to their home school after a year. This allows students and families to choose schools that work for them.

    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.
