Rutland District and Curriculum
Wachusett Regional School District is a large district comprised of twelve schools and over 7,400 students. The mission of WRSD is providing high-quality teaching for students to achieve academic excellence and social development in order to fulfill their potential. The district has implemented an initiative that commits to continually approving the literacy curriculum. A balanced literacy approach is used, and literacy blocks include reader’s and writer’s workshops, phonics and word study, read alouds, literacy assessments, and support for the MCAS state exam. The district also uses a math workshop that addresses the needs of all students.
We currently cover the following Rutland-area school district: Wachusett Regional School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rutland District Curriculum
Wachusett Regional School District’s core curriculum is centered on the following three statements about learning: “reading is thinking,” “writing is decision-making,” and “math is problem-solving.” In order to integrate these three truths into daily instruction, the district operates under a “workshop” model, which is a structured comprehensive approach to learning that cultivates understanding, develops foundational skills, and provides customized individualized instruction to students.
In order to instill 21st century learning, the district has been involved in an initiative called the AIM21 campaign. Through this, students are exposed to digital leaning tools in all classes and content areas. The district’s professional development is built around an instructional coaching approach that allows teachers to take what they gathered in workshops and apply it in their classrooms. The instructional coaches are at each school regularly and work with teachers directly via appointments to help them with teachers’ specific goals.

In their social studies classes, students watched a video about Peace Day and discussed bullying, the unrest happening around the world, and how they can help make the world a more peaceful place.

- Wachusett Coaches Get Certified in CPR, Defibrillator Use - Fifty-five Wachusett middle and high school coaches recently underwent training and became fully certified in CPR and the use of automated external defibrillators. The district hopes to avoid sudden cardiac deaths in children, such as that of 12-year-old Josh Thibodeau, who tragically passed away from a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in 2011. This training was made possible by the Helping Hearts Foundation, which also provides extensive annual physicals, including EKGs, to student athletes.

Chalk Talk: Foreign Languages in School
Foreign language courses are very important in students becoming diversified. With the Spanish language having surpassed English as being the commonly spoken language in the U.S., of course Spanish is offered in high schools. French is the next most common language offered, followed by German. Schools may also offer Latin, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and other languages commonly spoken in the area. High school students are often required to take one or two years of foreign languages, while many choose to take four years. Students may have the opportunity to take AP foreign languages as well. High school foreign language classes offer more than the ability to learn a new language; they allow students to experience the food and culture of the country, meet friends in after-school clubs, and even take trips to foreign countries.
