Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Purcell District Curriculum
The districts curriculum follows the Oklahoma Common Core Standards, which promotes science and technical literacy. Students are taught fundamental concepts with attention given to real-world situations in which what they are learning in class is applied. Students study the physical world around them and progress to engineering problems in advanced classes. Students are given hands-on opportunities to learn, build, and investigate difference fields of science.
The curriculum also provides clear expectations for humanities classes. Students read texts and craft opinions and arguments about these texts using citations and specific examples and quotes from the text to support these arguments. Students write primarily analytical essays to explore their opinions on literature. The curriculum is rigorous but also provides support and interventions for those who need them, including English language learners and students with different learning styles.

Chalk Talk: Early Decision vs. Regular Decision
Early Decision (ED) is an early, binding application. Deadlines are usually November 1st, though they can be as early as October 15th. The applicant is required to have all application materials completed by the deadline, including having test materials submitted, if the college requires standardized test scores. ED is a binding application, which means that the student signs a contract, along with parents and the college counselor, agreeing to attend that college if accepted. Regular Decision applications, of course, are not binding. They tend to have a much later deadline, sometimes as late as February. This gives the applicant much more time to prepare an application, but also means the student is competing against a larger pool of applicants. Regular Decision applicants also don’t have first-crack at financial aid money, the way ED students do, which is another possible drawback, but there should be plenty of money left in the budget.
