Reno District and Curriculum
The Washoe County School District education plans have been carefully planned based on a balance of teacher-based leadership, high-quality materials and instruction, and reasonable assessment and accountability. The curriculum is based upon core standards which are established to guide learning over the course of a students’ education. Each subject is focused on so that major topics within the subject are emphasized with a combination of skill building and opportunities to deepen conceptual knowledge.
We currently cover the following Reno-area school district: Washoe County School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Reno District Curriculum
In addition to relying on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, WCSD has supplemented this curriculum with high-standards that ensure that students finishing elementary school know the nature of mathematic functions, including the order of operations, using fractions, and communicating mathematic information with graphs and written language. This prepares them for rigorous high school math courses in Algebra and Geometry.
Science standards are formed around the Next Generation Science Standards (N.G.S.S.), which uses applied sciences like engineering and technology fields to integrate concepts that illustrate the nature of science, rather than just a memorization of fact. Young students in K-2 learn life sciences, grades 3-5 focus on physical sciences, and middle and high school students can select from science classes on their career path, such as biology, chemistry, and physics.
