Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oxford District Curriculum
The district also offers the Project C.O.F.F.E.E. (Cooperative Federation for Educational Experience) program. Project COFFEE is an alternative school for general and at-risk students in grades 6-12 that is built around a half-day of academic courses and a half-day of occupational education. The academic portion includes instruction in basic skills, which conforms to the Common Core State Standards. The occupational component involves hands-on training in specific, and high technology, skills or work-study placement. Instruction is individualized, and class sizes are small (no more than eight students per class).
The MAP tests are aligned with the standards and are given to students in grades 3-9 in a computerized format three times per school year in order to gauge their progress. This assessment is adaptive, meaning that if a student answers a question incorrectly, the next question will be easier, with adjustments in level of difficulty being made until that student’s instructional level is determined. Students in grades K-3 take the DIBELS test three times per year in order to monitor their early literacy skills.

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: Parent-Teacher Conferences: After the Conference
It is important to let parents know there is an open line of communication, making them aware that the conference is far from the only time when they will learn about the progress of their children. They should know that not only will the teacher stay in touch with them, but they should always feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or concerns. Teachers should always be sure to follow up with parents on the points of discussion from the conferences. For example, teachers may ask parents how their suggested at-home activities have worked out. They could also communicate how their children have improved in academic areas or behaviors. Finally, teachers need to let the knowledge gained during the conferences influence their instruction. For instance, they might learn of students’ interests and incorporate these into lessons or books that are read. Perhaps they found out about an at-home situation that would cause a student to exhibit certain behaviors and try a different disciplinary approach. The information gained can help teachers better individualize instruction, so it is important to use it!
