Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mansfield District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards include Mathematics and English/Language Arts objectives currently. The State of Ohio is working to include Science and Social Studies standards. In Mathematics, the emphasis is not on the drilling of basic fact. The Standards focus more on the mathematical processes and include the operations as well. Processes which are emphasized include problem solving, mathematical reasoning, making educated guesses and testing them, communicating work process, and building mathematical models.
In English/Language Arts, non-fiction reading is more prominent within a variety of types of readings. Again, the process of thinking is key in the Common Core State Standards. Students are are expected to learn strategies to analyze, examine, and critique what they read to build a knowledge base. Students are expected to demonstrate understanding of the content standards through a variety of means including writings, multi-media presentations, and visual art.

Mansfield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Common Core State Standards are at the heart of Ohio’s New Learning Standards which is the curriculum followed by the school districts in Mansfield, OH. Instead of having a very broad curriculum with a large number of objectives, the Ohio Learning Standards are more concentrated, with fewer objectives. These essential standards are expected to be covered in more depth. The process of learning, the actual content, and the products resulting from this more rigorous instruction are varied and more complex.
Keeping Informed: Recent Mansfield Educational News
- Beginning Anew Conference - Phil DeVol, a consultant from Marengo, Ohio presented information about children and families in poverty and how to reach them and communicate with them. This was part of a series of sessions called the “Beginning Anew Conference” which enlightened educators and community leaders on new strategies for working with old problems. Mansfield City Schools is the host for this conference and it was stated that the theme was “creating a climate for change.” District leaders want to have the designation “Excellence with Distinction” and are exploring alternative avenues for affecting change.
- Academic Excellence - Madison Local School District received the Ohio Department of Education designation of “Excellent.” This distinction is based on four performance measures including state indicators, the performance index, adequate yearly progress, and value-added measures. Madison Local met 18 of 26 state indicators, had a performance index of 94.4 out of 120, and met or exceeded 7 out of 10 value-added measures.
- Reality Store - The application of learning became evident as eighth grade students participated in their own reality show called the Reality Store. The eighth grade staff helped to plan and coordinate the event and students looked 25 years into the future to observe how they would be living. Each student had career assessments and set career goals. Based on this information, students were assigned jobs with paychecks, job descriptions, levels of education, types of debt including credit cards and student loans, and number of children in the family. Tables were set up to indicate banks, stores, and other vendors where they spent their money for necessities and/or luxuries.

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.

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: What Are Conjunctions?
A conjunction is a word that is used to join parts of sentences together—a word that connects or conjoins parts of a sentence. Simple conjunctions are called coordinating conjunctions. Examples of these are as follows: and, but, or, yet, for, nor, so. These conjunctions can join lists of items or can join two independent clauses together.
