Jeffersonville District and Curriculum
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.

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.

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.
