Las Vegas District and Curriculum
The public schools in Las Vegas, New Mexico are under the jurisdiction of two separate school districts: the Las Vegas City Public School District and the West Las Vegas Public School District. An emphasis is placed on helping students develop critical thinking skills, problem solving, and technological expertise. The Las Vegas City Public School District and the West Las Vegas Public School District are implementing the state approved standards for curriculum known as Common Core.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Las Vegas District Curriculum
Common Core creates very clear expectations for academic standards particularly in the areas of Mathematics and English and Language Arts. In English and Language Arts (ELA) students learn to read, write, listen and speak using correct English. This focus on literacy is applied to all academic courses including technology coursework. The program is progressive with students building on their skills grade by grade so they may develop advanced abilities.
In Mathematics, students are taught computational skills, algebra, geometry, statistics, probability and measurement. The curriculum in Mathematics is based on providing students with an in depth knowledge of these core subjects. Once students can master these basic math skills they should be able to demonstrate their math fluency with speed and be able to apply what they have learned to new problems and higher math. The goal for the districts is to have students who are able to use their skills in the work force and in higher education.

Chalk Talk: Online History Resources
Sometimes children can have a hard time getting interested in history. To help kids gain a better understanding of American history and what life was like in colonial days try visiting the Colonial Williamsburg virtual visit and see history come alive. The date is May 15, 1776 and the delegates are gathered for the fifth Virginia Convention where they will soon vote on whether to seek independence from England. At the site you can explore Colonial Williamsburg in 3D, walk down the Duke of Gloucester Street, visit the capital building, see the revolutionary city, and go in the Armory, the taverns and the shops. This is a great way to illustrate what the architecture was like at the time, and really get a feel for what a colonial town looked like at the beginning of our country.
