Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
The district uses a continuous improvement cycle, Plan Do Say Act (PDSA). The cycle begins with a plan for change in process and then the implementation of the change. Next, the district will study the results and readjust the plan according to the results. Vertical alignment in curriculum assures that students are progressing adequately throughout the school year and between school years. Alignment of curriculum also ensures that all students within the district are learning the same skills and assessed similarly throughout the district.
Educators and learners across schools in the Springfield District are progressing at the same rate in the classroom. Instruction and application of skills may be differentiated; however the curriculum is consistent. Students build skills in each course at their grade levels, developing a range of subject abilities. The Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessments are given in each school to assess the academic progress of students in core subject areas.

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: Responsibilities of a Special Education Department
To determine whether or not a student is eligible for special education, the general education teacher must complete a long and extensive packet. The entire process for getting a student into special education could take approximately one year. During this time the student may not receive special education services, but hopefully the teacher is differentiating instruction in the classroom to meet the needs of the student. Parents must be informed of their rights and the rights of their child. School district should provide information sessions informing students and parents of their rights. Informed parents are better parents regardless of the type of learner.
