Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Park City District Curriculum
The curriculum of the schools follows the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards, which are rigorous, researched standards intended to provide a quality, competitive education to all students. In humanities classes, the focus is on critical reading and thinking skills. Students read actively for meaning and author intent as well as veracity. They answer guiding questions and discuss the reading. They form opinions and gather evidence from the reading, which they use to support their conclusions in analytical essays and oral presentations.
The overall educational curriculum is based on students achieving a uniform set of standards that increase in difficulty with each advancing grade level. The Mathematics curriculum challenges students to become proficient in the concepts of arithmetic and geometry at an early age. Students should also understand how mathematical systems are used as tools of measurement and trade. These essential skills can then be applied to more advanced tasks such as analytical problem solving and recognizing mathematical patterns and relationships.

Chalk Talk: Letters of Recommendation
Most college applications require at least one recommendation, and many require two. Keep in mind that recommendations take time, so it’s important that students ask for them well in advance of the due-date. It’s best to give teachers at least a month, if not two, to ensure they have enough time to write a good recommendation. It’s also a good idea to give yourself some time between when the teacher’s recommendation is due and the final application deadline, at least a week. It’s a good idea to talk with the teacher when you ask for a recommendation so that s/he has some insight into why you asked him/her and what might be most useful to say. Also, once the recommendation has been completed, don’t forget to thank the teacher for taking the time and doing you a favor.
