Georgetown District and Curriculum
The mission of the Georgetown County School District is “to provide challenging educational programs that require all students to meet high academic standards and that prepare all students to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners.” These high academic standards come primarily from the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Math and English Language Arts. Under the Common Core, math teachers challenge their students to a deep mastery of concepts. They spend more time introducing and practicing the concepts, while challenging students to utilize higher level thinking skills to explain how they completed their work.
We currently cover the following Georgetown-area school district: Georgetown County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Georgetown District Curriculum
English Language Arts classes help students to synthesize what they read rather than simply telling students what the text is about. Students are challenged to read both nonfiction and literature and acquire valuable writing skills. Beyond creative or reflective writing, students also engage in analytic responses to the texts they read which helps them to organize their thoughts presented through writing. While it may be rigorous, graduates are able to compete in their postsecondary studies and future career pursuits.
The Math curriculum is structured similarly so that students are introduced early to concepts they will later be expected to master. In the early years, when students learn about pattern recognition, or shape properties, they are getting the building blocks for algebra and geometry in middle and high school. The introduction to probabilities, ratios and other ways to analyze data helps prepare students for more advanced work in statistics.

Chalk Talk: Family Homework Time
Finding time to spend together can be difficult for most households, so why not make homework time family time. Gather the family, a stack of homework, and some supplemental materials, such as flash cards and books. Next turn of the television and other electronic devices. Then, simply be together while children are completing their homework. Parents and older siblings can be available to assist on difficult assignments. Those without homework and practice flash cards, quiz others on spelling words, or simply read a book quietly. While you may not always interact with one another, simply being in the same room, doing the same thing can become valuable family time.
