Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Golden Gate District Curriculum
During their education students will be assessed on their learning through many different assessments: the ACT, the Comprehensive English Language Learning Assessment (CELLA), Collier Writes (prepares fourth, eighth, and tenth graders for a standardized writing assessment and is aligned with the state writing standards), Florida End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments (computer-based, criterion-referenced assessments that measure college and career readiness), FAIR (Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading ) (a reading diagnostic test developed in part by the Florida Center for Reading Research for teachers and reading specialists), and the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test® 2.0 (Florida’s state standardized exam that includes literacy, math, and science and measures student achievement.
The Assessment & Data Measurement section of the website also provides testing resources, test results, information about student progress monitoring, information on how research is conducted within the district, and program evaluation and survey results. Finally, the district encourages teachers to utilize CPALMS, which provides educator toolkits for each grade level to assist them in effectively incorporating the standards in their classrooms.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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: Should You Become a Teacher?
Is it time to think about what you would like to do as a career and you are thinking about teaching? It is a requirement for all teachers to “love kids,” but there is much more to it than just that. Even if you enjoy playing with and baby-sitting your little siblings, nieces and nephews, neighbors’’ children, etc., teaching is about instilling knowledge in kids and shaping their future. Generally, teaching is a rather low-paying position, especially when you are just starting out, so make sure it is something you are truly passionate about. You will not be rewarded by becoming rich but by making a difference in children’s lives. Also, there is sometimes a perception that teaching, particularly at the elementary level, is an “easy” job with time off for holidays and the summer months as well as decent hours. This cannot be farther from the truth, as teachers have to dedicate hours outside of the classroom to designing lesson plans, creating instructional materials, grading work, communicating with parents, shaping their classroom management plan, reading research, and looking for classroom ideas.
