Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lexington District Curriculum
Lexington’s elementary curriculum coordinators established Elementary Curriculum Benchmarks for each content area in order to be consistent across the district’s six elementary schools. These benchmarks communicate the skills that students are expected to learn and master throughout the school year. Middle School Curriculum Benchmarks have also been developed for students in grades six, seven, and eight.
The vision of the literacy curriculum includes students using critical thinking skills, experiencing texts, writing in various genres, and understanding the authenticity and joy of reading. Therefore, students have to be provided with rich experiences in literacy to develop these skills—the mission. In English language arts, students are fed a curriculum that adheres to the interests of the community, are taught specific strategies, receive instruction in the five critical areas of literacy, and are encouraged to take a variety of courses in areas of interest.

Lexington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lexington Public Schools consist of nine schools and almost 3,200 students. There are six elementary schools with grades K-5, two middle schools, and a high school. The district has three core values: excellence in academics; respectful relationships; and a culture involving reflection, collaboration, and continuous improvement. The schools create standards-based report cards that monitor how students are progressing towards the year-end benchmarks. This involves a criterion-referenced system, meaning that student performances are measured against the standards and not each other.
We currently cover the following Lexington-area school district: Lexington Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Lexington Educational News
- Mock Crash Drives Home Important Lesson - Students; school administrators; and Lexington paramedics, police officers, and firefighters staged a mock crash in front of Lexington High School students to emphasize the dangers of drinking and being distracted while driving. The mock crash involved an intoxicated teen driver killing and injuring several young people. A Lexington firefighter and paramedic stressed how much of an issue this is today with so many distractions available to drivers.
- LexFUN! Held for Kindergarten Parents - Lexington recently hosted “LexFUN!'s Kindergarten Parents Panel: What Every Parent Wants to Know” for parents to learn about kindergarten in the district. The panel involved a question-and-answer session with parents of current kindergarten students from all six elementary students.
- Music Students Learn from the Best in Their Craft - During Lexington High School’s annual Jazz Festival, jazz students had the opportunity to learn from a highly regarded trombonist. This marked a decade of Lexington’s jazz students being able to practice their instruments with an in-residence musician during jazz week, which the school found more beneficial than using budget money for entering additional competitions. For the first time, the school’s honors-level chorus students had a similar opportunity, getting to work with a world famous choral director.

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: The Different Ways Schools Utilize Reading Specialists
The traditional way that Title I Reading works is for students who are not proficient in reading to be pulled from their reading classes and receive small-group instruction in the reading specialist’s room. Many schools still use the “pull out” method, but some are moving in a different direction. Many feel that students should be included in the regular classroom as often as possible, so reading specialists may come to their students’ classrooms and work with them one-on-one there. A third approach that is gaining popularity is co-, or team-, teaching. This involves the classroom teacher and the reading specialist taking equal part in teaching the reading lesson. This allows the reading specialist to impart his/her expertise in literacy on all the students and frees up one teacher to assist students who need help and closely observe how students are doing. This method is also beneficial because it requires constant communication between the classroom teacher and the reading specialist.
