The Parsippany-Troy School District achieves its mission by basing its curriculum on the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, which outlines learning benchmarks students must achieve. But the district doesn’t just rely on these guidelines; they also involve administrators, teachers, students, parents and community members in the development of curriculum and instruction. The result of this collaborative effort is the production of learners who are skilled, confident and able to meet the demands of making positive contributions to our society.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Parsippany-Troy Hills District Curriculum
The Parsippany-Troy Hills School District provides its student with a standards-based education that focuses on learning in the primary core content areas: English, science, math, the arts, health and physical education, and social studies. The knowledge that students gain in these core areas is governed, in part, by the state’s Core Curriculum Standards. As students move from elementary school to middle school, and finally to high school, they are expected to meet increasingly rigorous performance standards.
A special area of emphasis is literacy. Students gain the skills needed to learn to read and write effectively, but also how to conduct research and cite evidence appropriately. Students also learn how to differentiate between fact and opinion in written works. As students get older, they are challenged to develop more complex literacy skills. They learn to integrate information from multiple sources into a cohesive argument, determine the voice, tone and main idea of short stories, and evaluate conflicting information to determine the most likely explanation.

Chalk Talk: Why Literacy is So Important
Some people hear the word literacy and think only of the ability to read and write. While this is certainly the core of what literacy is all about, the effects of one’s ability to read and write are often overlooked. Studies show that the better one can read and write the better off they will be financially. Good readers tend to find more satisfaction in their job and make more money than the average American. At the same time, people who cannot read or read at a low grade-level equivalency tend to live at or near the poverty line – they struggle to find and maintain work, and when they do find work it is only in the short-term. Additionally, there is a strong correlation between one’s literacy level and the likelihood of committing criminal acts. So while being literate means having the ability to read a menu or write a letter, at a fundamental level, it is also a ticket to a better life.
