Payette District and Curriculum
Payette School District follows the Idaho Common Core Standards which provides a clear set of learning standards dedicated to the same subject area topics that students should master each year. Whenever possible, these concepts learned in each class will be applied to real-world situations so that students can develop strategies for solving more accessible, relatable problems. This will give students critical thinking and problem-solving skills that they can take with them, whether they pursue post-secondary education or directly enter the workforce.
We currently cover the following Payette-area school district: Payette School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Payette District Curriculum
The English and humanities curriculum challenges students by having them read different types of texts, from classic literature to non-fiction. When students graduate, they should be well-versed in reading all types of texts at a higher level. Students write analytical papers and make oral presentations. They are required to dig below the surface of different types of texts, ranging from hard copy books to digital resources. They gather evidence from their reading, evaluate it, and use it to back up their written and oral presentations, so that they demonstrate that they can support their arguments and decisions with evidence.
In mathematics classes, students delve deeply into fewer concepts so that each student has a full understanding before moving on to the next concept. Students are taught to understand why the math works and will be asked to prove this understanding, instead of just memorizing formulas.

Chalk Talk: College Resumes
What should an applicant include on a resume, and how should it be formatted? College resumes include extracurricular activities, which can range from sports, theater, arts, clubs, summer or after-school jobs, etc. The thing to remember is that these activities should demonstrate various qualities and interests in the student. A good rule of thumb is to include activities that demonstrate multiple qualities. For example, involvement in a club is great, but being a leader of a club is better. Also, being involved in a club with a special focus, like community service or diversity awareness, looks good. Remember that different types of activities can be grouped together for more impact. Instead of just having a “Clubs” section, maybe have a “Leadership” or “Community Involvement” section. The key is remembering that this document is designed to be read quickly, so important information should jump out at the reader.
