Hope District and Curriculum
Hope Schools are comprised of five schools and 2,684 K-12 students. There are four public schools: two elementary schools (one that holds K-7 and the other with grades five and six), a middle school containing grades seven and eight, and a high school. The district is also home to an alternative school called Garland Learning Center for students in grades 7-12. All schools follow Common Core Standards so that their learning process is aligned throughout their entire education.
We currently cover the following Hope-area school district: Hope Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hope District Curriculum
In order to help all students meet the standards, Hope implements technology to create a 21st century learning environment and offers supplemental educational services for students who need extra help. Hope’s website provides a comprehensive guide for staff as to how to use iPads in the classroom, with multiple functions being explained. The district also has a detailed, updated technology plan for the years 2012-2015 which covers both ways in which technologies are integrated into teaching and learning and also about goals for student learning in the subject.
In terms of supplemental services, there are over 30 centers that work with Hope students. Not all of the services are designed for students who need improvement in specific content areas; there are also enrichment and creative arts programs, including music, art, cooking, and technology. During each school year, over 200 students participate in these services.

Keeping Informed: Recent Hope Educational News
- Hope Mock Trial Team Shines at State Level - Nine students who were a part of Hope High School’s Mock Trial Team finished eighth overall out of 30 teams in the recent Arkansas Bar Association State High School Mock Trial Competition in Little Rock. This is the best finish Hope has had since its inception in the event three years ago, and the students’ performance was all the more impressive considering that all the schools ahead of them were Class 7A schools (Hope is a Class 5A school). This year, the team participated in a mock criminal case in which there were three each of the following: attorneys, defense witnesses, and prosecution witnesses.
- Keeping Parents Involved - A 22-year educator has recently taken on a new role of Parental Involvement Facilitator at Clinton Primary School, and through this title, she was surprised to find that most students receive little to no support in terms of their education at home. The facilitator points out that this may be a greater challenge today because many children are not living in traditional, two-parent households; in fact, in one of her past classrooms of 24 students, just six lived with both their mother and father. Through this program, parents are able to sit in on math and language arts lessons in order to learn how to help their children and may even borrow school materials to use at home.
- WatchDOGS are a Kid’s Best Friend - The students at Clinton Primary School love when the WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) visit their school. The WatchDOGS are male volunteers—fathers, uncles, grandfathers, etc.—who patrol the hallways to help keep students safe, spend time with children during lunchtime and recess, and work with the students in their classrooms. The Parental Involvement Facilitator pointed out that many Clinton Primary students live with a single mother and may not have a positive male role model to look up to, and the WatchDOGS help with this. Volunteers do not even have to be related to a student in the school to sign up and be someone a child looks up to.

Chalk Talk: Parental Involvement in Education
Two of the news stories about Hope Public Schools discuss parental involvement in the students’ education. Children are often too young to understand why education matters, so it is important that they receive support from their families. They should be just as proud of doing well in school as they are, say, hitting a homerun in a baseball game. Children should be praised by their parents or guardians when they do well in school. Unfortunately, today, parents are often extremely busy working long hours and do not have the time to be involved or are simply not willing to. Teachers should give parents plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the classroom and should keep them updated regularly with a newsletter. All districts should create a website that they constantly update that parents have access to.
