Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stoughton District Curriculum
Stoughton Public Schools utilize the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks as well as the ISTE NETS for Students and Teachers (technology standards). The elementary grades use the Lexia Core 5 and Reading Street (Pearson) programs for literacy instruction and which helps students progress through reading levels at their pace. Goals of the literacy program is to develop fluency in all types of genre and to provide students with opportunities to respond to their reading in both writing and discussion.
As of now, the district continues to assess students using the MCAS state standardized test, and school board members are undecided as to whether or not they would like to transition over to the PARCC assessment, which better prepares students for college and their careers and aligns with the Common Core Standards. The new standards include objectives for developing skills such as creativity, collaboration and innovative thinking.

Keeping Informed: Recent Stoughton Educational News
- Graduating Elementary Students Welcome New Students in Unique Fashion - Ten graduating fifth grade students from Dawe Elementary School recorded a commercial welcoming future kindergarten students to the school and explaining the school’s classes, activities, and programs. In addition to the commercial being available on YouTube, it ran on a local cable TV channel. The talented students worked with the school’s technology teacher and district’s media director in planning, storyboarding, scripting, filming, and editing the commercial—a process that took several months to complete.
- Stoughton Educators Complete Advanced Graduate Studies - Five Stoughton teachers recently completed their Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS). Topics included the use of iPads in developing reading skills in kindergarten students, the effects of literature circles on fifth graders’ comprehension, and examining early intervention strategies to benefit at-risk students.
- Eighth Graders Transition - Stoughton eighth graders recently took a field trip to Stoughton High School, where they would be headed in a few months. Once there, they were taken on tours by SHS Group Leaders and given mini-presentations on various topics, including how to stay organized, rules on backpacks and electronic devices, information on group mentoring (advisory), the criteria for graduating in terms of credits, the procedures for lunch and moving from class to class, etc. A Q&A session was held as well.

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: Educational Jargon: Performance
A student’s performance refers to his/her ability to apply his/her learning of the content in some way. Performances may include acting out a skit, giving an oral presentation, completing a written exam, designing a poster or PowerPoint presentation, writing a report, creating a newspaper, writing a journal, creating a video, etc. Basically, in educational terms, a performance is an action that shows whether or not the student met the objectives and standards of a lesson. Performances are linked to assessments; for example, an oral presentation is an assessment, while the student actually giving that presentation represents that child’s performance. Of course, student performances can be good or bad depending upon the criteria set for them and their understanding of the material that was taught.
