Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lloydminster District Curriculum
The Lloydminster Public School Division utilizes the Saskatchewan Curriculum. This includes the curricula for arts education, English language arts, health, math, physical education, science, social studies, Aboriginal Languages (K-12), and Core Ukrainian (K-12). Each curricular area and grade level includes the following: the Aim & Goals, the Teaching, learning Outcomes for students, the Outcomes & Indicators that students met the outcomes, Other Useful Materials, and Resources.
The Aim & Goals are broad statements that highlight what students are expected to be able to learn and do in each content area. For example, in English language arts, students are expected to be able to comprehend and respond to various texts, express their thoughts and experiences in a variety of ways (compose and create), and assess and reflect. The district offers Business and Vocational Programs, English as an Additional Language, Core French (K-12), Distance Learning (Outreach School), Resource Centers, Early Reading Intervention, and other academic programs.

Keeping Informed: Recent Lloydminster Educational News
- Lloydminster Students Advance to Division-Wide Spelling Bee - All elementary and middle school classrooms in the Lloydminster Public School Division (grades 4-9) held spelling bees, with the top spellers from each classroom then participating in their school spelling bees. Then, the top two spellers from the elementary schools and top three from the middle schools advanced to the Annual LPSD Spelling Bee. Teacher-librarian Shella Stewart said the spelling bees are not only great for spelling but for students to improve their vocabulary as they break down words and for them to gain confidence in their public speaking skills.
- LPSD Celebrates Family Literacy Day - Lloydminster Public School Division celebrated Family Literacy Day—a national day of awareness to promote reading and literacy-related activities for families—to showcase the successes of students and staff in areas of literacy. The district has surpassed the goal of having at least 80 percent of students reading at or above grade-level in the province and has implemented several supports to help students who have not met this goal, including making literacy coaches available to provide short-term intervention to individuals or small groups of students.
- Winston Churchill School Introduces ‘Buddy Bench’ - The Lloydminster Public School Division partnered with the Prairie North Regional Health Authority (PNRHA) to build a “Buddy Bench” on the playground at the Winston Churchill School. Students sit on the bright yellow bench when they would like someone to play with. The Buddy Bench, which has been a staple at schools in Europe for years and was recently introduced in the U.S., is meant to instill in students the importance of friendship and including others.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
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: Reading Correction Miscue
When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)—teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. One type of miscue is a correction miscue, which occurs when a reader self-corrects a word that he/she had read incorrectly. This is really the best type of miscue, as a student self-correcting is actually a sign that he/she is a competent reader, recognizing the mistake and that the word that he/she read inaccurately doesn't make sense in the sentence, More information on this can be found here.
