Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newburyport District Curriculum
Newburyport’s curriculum continuum begins with the district establishing a consensus on the curriculum; after that, the curriculum board develops learning benchmarks that spell out expectations for students as well as common formative and summative assessments that will monitor student progress in meeting these benchmarks. From there, students’ work will be looked at to identify goals and alterations that need to be made to the curriculum, and the district will use assessment data to inform instruction. All parts of the curriculum work together with the goal of increasing student achievement.
Newburyport High School’s curriculum centers on the principles that students will be proficient in terms of academics, career skills, social relationships, and wellness and that they will successfully complete the core curriculum. This core curriculum requires 90 credits: four years of English, four years of social studies and history, two years of science, three years of math, two years of world language, and four years of physical education.

Chalk Talk: What Do Fifth Graders Learn in Math?
According to the Common Core Standards for Math, fifth grade students will become fluent at adding and subtracting fractions, including those with different denominators by using equivalent fractions. Students will also begin to understand the process of multiplying and dividing with fractions. Additionally, they will begin to add and subtract decimals up to the hundredths place, including making estimations for sums and differences when decimals are involved. Students will solve problems with parentheses and brackets in expressions. They should be able to read and write decimals up to the thousandths place in several forms and compare decimals using the symbols >, <, and =. Students will have to convert different-sized measurement units within one measurement system (for example, 5 centimeters to 0.05 meters).
