Hebron District and Curriculum
Hebron Public Schools operates two schools, Gilead Hill School and Hebron Elementary School; students attend the regional RHAM High School. The districts view curriculum as the backbone of the educational experience. Curriculum is always ongoing process with reviews and updates to meet the Connecticut State Frameworks. Hebron Public Schools began implementation and transition to the Common Core State Standards in 2011 and will continue through 2014. An increased emphasis on informational text will take place at the elementary level.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hebron District Curriculum
The elementary math curriculum requires students to add multiples of 10 up to 100 and subtract up to 90 using models or drawings. They will gain a greater ability to use measurements to compare objects by length and express lengths by units (in whole numbers). In geometry, students will create more complex shapes from two- and three-dimensional shapes, composing a new shape. They will be exposed to early instruction on fractions, dividing circles and rectangles into two and four equal parts and describing them using the terms halves, quarters, and fourths.
Additionally, students will demonstrate understanding of concepts at a much more rigorous level with the implementation of Common Core and be prepared for advanced math in high school. In 2014, students in grades 3-6 will take an online assessment to measure student process known as the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC) instead of the Connecticut Mastery Tests (CMT). All of these assessments align with the Common Core Standards framework. Counselors and other instructors also assess students based on character building, social and emotional health, and self-awareness.

Chalk Talk: Changes Coming for the SAT
The SAT is about to undergo a redesign! Beginning in 2016, the SAT will see changes on what’s tested, how it’s scored, and how students can prepare. The new test will have three sections; evidence based reading and writing, math, and an optional essay. Students will have to justify their answers in lieu of filling in the bubbles. The scoring scale will change from a possible 2400 back to a possible 1600 with the essay having its own separate score. Students used to be penalized for choosing the wrong answer; however, that will no longer be the case with the revised SAT. Additionally, although not a new facet altogether for the SAT, there are now subject specific tests that students can take as well. There are SAT Economics, Math, Sciences, Languages, Literature - about 30 specific options that students can take to help demonstrate a particular academic ability.
