Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jeffersonville District Curriculum
The Indiana State Department of Instruction provides a list of academic standards and benchmarks for school districts to follow when delivering instruction. The GCSD uses these benchmarks as a guide to developing units of study but parents will find that they often go well beyond these recommendations to create lessons that are academically rigorous and challenging; requiring students to ‘stretch’ their thinking. Benchmarks and standards are available on line for persons who are interested in learning more about the standards.
The GCSD provides students with a technology format called COMPASS that individualizes and directs student learning in core curricular areas. Lessons are designed to align with state standards and benchmarks and programs provide immediate feedback for students – providing enrichment or relearning opportunities that are dependent upon a students' level of mastery.

Jeffersonville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Jeffersonville is the county seat of Clark County in Indiana and has a population of nearly 45,000. Students attend the Greater Clark County Schools. Differentiated instruction is infused into nearly all learning opportunities for children from grades k-12. This is a way of teaching and learning that tailors the experience to the student’s ability and interests in the core curricular areas and the arts, physical education and music program as well. In the end, students walk away with a greater depth of understanding and knowledge on the subject of study.
We currently cover the following Jeffersonville-area school district: Greater Clark County Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Jeffersonville Educational News
- Embracing Technology - Computers and the internet are the most common tools for gathering information and learning; as well as for entertainment. In acknowledgement of this, the Greater Clark County Schools’ Technology Department is preparing to distribute 8,000 laptop computers to students in grades 3 through 12 for the 2013-2014 school year. Students will receive their and information about policies and expectations, insurance information, and more at evening events.
- Ten More Minutes - For years communities have complained that their students are not spending enough time in school. Well, the Greater Clark County School District has done something about this. Beginning in 2013, ten minutes have been added to each school day. That is 1800 additional minutes or 30 full hours of learning time over the course of a school year. This is a decision that will benefit everyone.
- Getting More Mileage out of Learning - In an effort to emphasize health and wellness the students of the Greater Clark County School District participated in an 8 week walking program. Each student and staff member received a pedometer and were required to keep track of the number of steps they took each day. Other activities that incorporated health and wellness, nutrition and exercise were included in this effort to increase personal awareness and responsibility for choosing a healthy lifestyle.
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.

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: Planning a Family Night
Children will likely not remember the daily routine of life with the family. What they do cherish are memories of special times with the family so start a tradition of 'Family Night' at your home. First, choose a night that is usually not too busy with errands, events or other distractions. Allow your children to contribute to the planning. Make a list or have a family night jar where everyone can write down their ideas and you choose one each week. Keep a full array of board games and cards available; but don’t rule out video games as a fun family distraction. Finally, a family night can also mean visiting a book store, writing a family journal or creating a photo album, or simply talking.
