Nicholasville District and Curriculum
The schools in Nicholasville in Jessamine County Kentucky follow the curriculum set out by the Kentucky Department of Education. The curriculum is detailed in all academic areas including Mathematics, History and Social Studies, English/Language Arts, and Science. Regardless of the activity students are engaged in, it is the expectation of the school district that each child will put forth his or her best effort. In that regard, the classroom and out-of-class learning experiences are challenging, yet relevant to life and work in the modern world.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nicholasville District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts in Nicholasville, students are expected to learn reading, writing, speaking, listening, observing, inquiring and how to use technology to communicate. Much emphasis is put upon learning to write effectively and with good English usage. Your child will have writing expectations for each grade level. In the classrooms, teachers will continually assess your child to see that he/she is meeting those expectations.
In Math, students are encouraged to meet standard criteria that the Department of Education sets out. Elementary students learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Algebra and geometry concepts are introduced in elementary classes and continued through high school. PERKS is in effect and that is a program for judging effectiveness of Math programs. There is a Math and Science partnership program in the schools designed to encourage innovative teaching.

Chalk Talk: Listening Is a Great Skill
Listening is one of the things included in the curriculum for English/Language Arts for Kentucky. It is often an overlooked skill but is over 50% of all communication. Hearing is different from listening. Listening is really hearing and understanding what the other people are saying. If you consciously try to listen more you will become a better student. Teachers really do have things to say that can benefit you. So do your fellow students and parents. Listen up – you may hear something special and interesting.
