Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Manchester District Curriculum
West Delaware County Community School District’s curriculum framework describes processes and procedures for the implementation of the curriculum in various areas, including identifying the best instructional strategies and materials to deliver instruction to the students, distinguishing the current method of delivering instruction from the desired method, organizing staff into professional learning communities for collaboration, providing ongoing professional development on instructional strategies, and regularly evaluating the implementation of the curriculum.
Curriculum development involves studying and identifying the latest evidence-based best practices in education, distinguishing the current program from the desired curriculum, incorporating the nation and statewide academic standards, identifying what students need to know in each content area (standards, proficiency benchmarks, and essential understandings), creating a curriculum that builds upon prior learning, and communicating information about the curriculum to all stakeholders.

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: Resume Tips: Skills and Abilities
The last section of the resume typically includes a list of a candidate’s skills and abilities. These skills should be focused on the sector and on abilities that are important in the profession you are applying to. They should not be too specific. A candidate may mention their ability to manage a large group as an example of an management-related skill. Skills such as proficiency in Microsoft Office, the ability to collaborate with others, organizational skills, and the ability to communicate effectively in writing and verbally are all skills that are useful in professional settings in general. It is not wise to lie or over-exaggerate one’s skills; if the candidate makes it to the point of applying for specific jobs, the candidate should have talents and interest in the necessary areas. Candidates should list about five to ten skills in a list format with bullet points.
