Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Murphysboro District Curriculum
Murphysboro Community Unit School District maintains a rigorous, competitive curriculum that challenges students at whatever level they are working on, while providing clear expectations for student learning. Teachers are given the flexibility to model their lessons to fit the individual needs of students to ensure success, whether that be providing advanced work to keep a student challenged, or remedial work to help a student catch up to grade level. Interventions are also available so to ensure every student achieves the learning goals.
Students will take many assessments during their school years and the tests are aligned closely to the curriculum to gauge that students are achieving each objective. Students will take the PARCC test in Math and Literacy starting in grade 3 and annually until high school. There is also the Dynamic Learning Maps Alternate Assessment available to students who have an IEP that calls for an alternate assessment. High school students will take PARCC once and also the ACT Plus Writing so they can demonstrate their proficiency in written communication.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision Applications
Early Decision (ED) is an early college application with a deadline in early November, usually. It’s binding, which means that students must attend that college if accepted. Response times are usually fairly quick, and by mid-December, students know if they’re accepted. There are many benefits to Early Decision applications, including a higher acceptance rate. But what if a student isn’t accepted? They are then free to apply Early Decision elsewhere. The problem is that the application deadline has usually passed at that point. This is where Early Decision II comes into play. Early Decision II is a second round of Early Decision applications, usually due in mid-January or February. Early Decision II offers the same advantages as Early Decision does.
