Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lakeshore District Curriculum
The core subjects of Language, Math, and Science are taught with the goal of preparing students with a strong knowledge base and teaching them problem-solving, analytic, and other thinking strategies which are applicable across the curriculum. In Language, students develop their literacy and communication skills through reading for meaning and the development of decoding skills, writing tasks that cover multiple purposes for writing, and learning about the language and its proper usage.
In Science, students learn basic content and principles of Science through their introduction to life sciences, earth and environment, and basic concepts in physics and chemistry. As with Math, the middle school years deepens students focus in major topics in biology and physical science so that in high school students are able to start in on more rigorous courses in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, Environmental Science and other topics the schools offer. Technology has also become a major part of the curriculum and daily learning experience of students.

Chalk Talk: The Personnel of a School
Each school's personnel will vary depending on the number of students and its budget, but schools generally have personnel that mirror each other. Most schools have one to ten teachers per grade level (elementary) or content area (secondary). They will have at least one teacher for each "special" (gym, library, music, etc.), and most have a technology teacher and/or coordinator. Each school typically has at least one special education teacher, reading specialist, and speech teacher; budget cuts sometimes make these positions part-time and/or split between two schools within a district. Schools in high-need areas usually hire an ESL teacher. Some schools have teachers who specialize in gifted education, but the position is becoming less common due to budget cuts. Of course, all schools have a school nurse. Schools have at least one secretary to head the office, while a security guard typically patrols the front doors. Every school has a guidance counselor, with high schools often having two or three, as they deal with students' college applications. Finally, each school is headed by a principal, with many also having an assistant principal.
