Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainfield District Curriculum
Students in Plainfield must demonstrate their content-area competence by meeting benchmarks and standards outlined in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards. These standards establish what students should be able to understand at each grade from pre-K through the 12th grade. Students must show proficiency in the visual and performing arts, health and physical education, world languages, technology, science, social studies and 21st Century life and careers.
The Science curriculum is predicated on the notion that students must have the knowledge and understanding of scientific concepts and processes in order to be effective decision-makers and productive members of society. To prepare students to meet these goals, high school students are required to take at least three lab-based sciences, to include biology, chemistry, and one of the following: engineering, physics or environmental science. Students must take the End of Biology and End of Chemistry assessments at the conclusion of those classes and pass the test in order to meet proficiency for the standards.

Chalk Talk: The Value of Vocational Education
While it will take time to change society’s opinions that vocational education is nothing more than auto mechanics and woodworking, great strides are being made to offer enhanced career-based learning in schools across America. Students can take part in four-year high school programs in everything from automotive technology to culinary arts to building trades and everything in between. Students are given the opportunity to learn both in the classroom and at real-life jobs sites, where they can apply their learning and help complete actual jobs. Students are taught by experts in their areas of study, tutored by community business leaders and gain real-world experience in work-study programs and internships. These programs will help develop the next generation of great American workers who will have confidence that their talents and intelligences will be well-respected and highly valuable aspects of our workforce.
