Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salt Lake City District Curriculum
The Common Core’s goals for Math are to produce proficient students who are capable of making sense of problems, reasoning abstractly, and being able to use mathematical patterns to apply math in the classroom and beyond. The district supports teachers in implementing these goals by offering pacing guides and other tools to help monitor how students are meeting standards, as well as benchmark assessments to make sure that students are meeting state standards.
In English Language Arts, the Common Core’s goals are to help them read and understand a broad variety of texts, be able to critically evaluate them, and write well for different audiences. The district also employs literacy coaches, certified teachers with a Reading Endorsement, a statewide qualification that certifies that they are experts in teaching literacy skills, to work with students. As students reach middle and high school, they focus on reading skills not only in their Language Arts classes, but in Social Studies, Math and Science classes.

The Salt Lake City School District follows the Common Core State Standards program in English and Mathematics. The Common Core is a set of standards which have been adopted by forty-four states, and which provide a foundation for students to build skills throughout their K-12 career to be able to succeed in all areas of work and learning after graduation. It also participates in the Character Education/Community of Caring program, which supports students in developing strong moral values and a desire to serve their community. The district offers the International Baccalaureate program in two of its four high schools.

Key members of the city leadership, the school district, and the business community have come together to support this initiative, and to try to ensure that its message gets out there.
- Hands-On Learning Grant - Indian Hills Elementary has an excellent hands-on science lab, and is now, because of a grant from a local education charity, been able to expand the science experiences it provides to more students. Hands-on science experiences are a great way to make students passionate about science and learning. Although the grant program, 100% For Kids Credit Union Education Foundation, usually supports core curriculum projects, it made an exception for Indian Hills’s excellent program.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Integrating Healthy Living Into Schools
More schools are integrating information and practices for healthy living into their programs. Some of this happens in the general curriculum, where students learn about health issues and what the consequences of lifestyle choices are. In addition, there are obviously health and physical education classes, where skills for healthy living are taught directly. However, schools are also integrating these issues into extracurricular areas, having students participate in physical challenges, using teachers and principals as models for healthy living, and setting goals for physical activity for all students. At every level of education, schools can be places where students learn to be healthy!
