Marion District and Curriculum

The districts are committed to providing students with a well-rounded, standards-based curriculum that prepares them to be successful at the post-secondary level, as well as in their future careers. They offer many programs for students based around the arts, technology, and other subjects of high interest. The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Curriculum, which has internationally benchmarked standards so that students are competitive no matter where they receive their education from.

We currently cover the following Marion-area school districts: Crab Orchard CUSD 3 and Marion CUSD 2.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marion District Curriculum

Students are expected to use critical thinking and analytical writing skills in their classes, to become effective listeners and communicators, and to take responsibility for their own learning. Students are also taught to treat themselves and others with respect. Students learn to interact with a variety of groups to achieve their goals, to accept constructive criticism within a group, and evaluate their own behavior as a group member.

Students are taught to be responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior in all situations and accept responsibility for their own actions. They are encouraged to make positive choices for physical and emotional health. As socially responsible citizens, students are expected to demonstrate respect for individuals, cultures, races, and genders and act responsibly towards others. Students are taught to exercise the responsibilities of citizenship and to participate in community service to gain a deeper understanding of the value of public service.

Chalk Talk: The Role of Transcripts

The most important part of any college application is the transcript. The transcript contains two main elements: the student’s course selection and the grade point average (GPA). The course selection helps the college determine whether the student has taken challenging courses, and how well the student has done in them. “Challenging” can mean a lot of things and depends on the student’s prospective major. Someone majoring in engineering will have a different-looking transcript from someone majoring in education, and colleges take this into account. The main thing they’re looking for are honors or Advanced Placement type classes, if those are offered by the school. The school profile is another document that accompanies the transcript and explains what courses are available, so that the student can’t be penalized for not taking courses that aren’t offered. The GPA is also vitally important, but again depends on the courses the student has taken. A straight-A average in classes that aren’t that challenging doesn’t hold as much weight as a solid B average in very tough courses, for example.
