Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Owatonna District Curriculum
The K-5 standards include proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, listening and language applicable to a variety of disciplines, including ELA. The standards for grades 6-12 are divided into two sections, one is ELA, and the second is history/social studies, science and technical subjects. The College and Career Readiness (CCR) and high school standards work in unison to create assessments.
The Science standards require students to understand content related to biology, chemistry and physics, earth and environmental science, and technology. From the early grades, students are given hands-on opportunities to engage in scientific exploration. They learn how to form and validate hypotheses, conduct and design scientific experiments, and develop scientific literacy with which to communicate their findings.

Owatonna District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Owatonna Public Schools adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects to ensure that students are college and career ready by the completion of high school. The state of Minnesota collaborated in the development of the CCSS, and many of the suggestions rendered by Minnesota educators were incorporated in the standards. The standards follow along major topics of each subject and increase the complexity each year.
We currently cover the following Owatonna-area school district: Owatonna Public Schools.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Individualized Plans for Career and College Readiness
Young Minnesotans can start planning for a successful transition to post secondary education and employment through Personal Learning Plans. Students entering 9th grade are required to have a Personal Learning Plan centered on eight key elements. The guide includes academic scheduling, career exploration, career and employment related skills, community partnership, college access, all forms of post secondary training and experiential learning opportunities. The plan is revised and revised annually by the respective student, parents and school to ensure that the child is on track and making progress to meet state and local academic standards and high school graduation requirements. The goal is to have the student successfully enter the workforce and/or post-secondary education by giving them time to plan for and envision their path to success. With clear expectations in place, young adults will feel more prepared to take on more responsibilities.
