Oxford District and Curriculum
Oxford Public Schools contain four schools and roughly 1,900 students. There is a primary school with grades K-2, an elementary school with grades 3-4, a middle school, and a high school. Oxford Public Schools align their curriculum with the Common Core State Standards. With the application of these standards, the district provides a rigorous curriculum with rich learning experiences that helps prepare students for success in a 21st century global society. The district uses assessments such as the MCAS (the state standardized assessment), MAP testing, and DIBELS.
We currently cover the following Oxford-area school district: Oxford Public Schools.
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.

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!
