Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Johnston District Curriculum
The standards expect a graduate to be literate. Literacy, according to the standards, is defined as the ability to understand complex academic texts, significant content knowledge across a wide range of genres, ability to communicate effectively by various means, to use and understand technology and media, and to understand and appreciate other cultures and perspectives.
In relation to Mathematics, the standards emphasize the ability to comprehend problems, use abstract and quantitative reasoning, develop arguments and understand the arguments of others, apply mathematical principles to everyday life, and use available tools to accomplish these purposes. By grade eight, students should be able to work with radicals and integer exponents, functions, basic geometry, and statistics and probability. At graduation, the mathematics student should be well-rounded, equipped with understanding of both rational and irrational numbers, vector and matrix quantities, and the complex number system.

Chalk Talk: Absent in Body, but Not in Spirit
It is best to be present each school-day. However, if an absence is unavoidable, there are things you can do to minimize the disruption. If you know ahead of time that you will miss a day of school, you can let your teachers know and ask what will be covered in class. You may have time to do a reading or complete a homework assignment during your absence. If your absence was unforeseen, it is your responsibility to consult with your teachers as soon as you return to find out what you missed. If you missed a substantial amount of school, you may want to ask your teachers to work out a schedule so that you can gradually make up the assignments before the end of the school year. Your classmates can also be helpful. Choose a diligent, responsible friend with neat handwriting who will let you copy notes from class or telephone you with important class announcements and assignment.
