Susanville District and Curriculum
The curriculum used in Susanville is a standards-based framework for teaching and learning. Each subject has a curriculum guideline that specifies the skills and knowledge students will develop each year. The yearly knowledge compounds upon itself so that students develop a deep knowledge in their subjects. All core subjects help students to develop critical thinking skills like analysis, problem-solving and process-oriented thinking. By using prior knowledge to deepen subject knowledge year-by-year, students are required to use reflective thinking which helps to bring about all these cognitive processes.
We currently cover the following Susanville-area school district: Johnstonville Elementary School District, Lassen Union High School District, Richmond Elementary School District, and Susanville School District.

The curriculum in Math details the skills of numeracy, algebra, geometry and data analysis each year.

The curriculum for Language Arts teaches students how to reading literary and informational texts, writing for a range of purposes, using a writing process, and listening and speaking with critical thinking skills.
Through the technology curriculum, the manner in which technology improves productivity is examined. Students learn how to use various tools, including software programs, to complete assignments. The ways in which technology improves economic production is also analyzed. Students look at cultural changes that have come about, particularly in the last decade, as social media has become an increasingly integrated aspect of life. Ethics are discussed as well, with students identifying ways that they can utilize these technologies in a manner that is responsible.

Chalk Talk: Music Improves Education
Music is an integral component of the K-12 curriculum that offers students an opportunity to express their creativity and expand their knowledge and understanding about cultures from around the world. Music offers many academic and behavioral benefits as well. Students that take part in musical studies demonstrate higher achievement in math than their peers, due in part to the analytical nature of musical studies. This improved performance in math extends to the ACT and SAT, where music students consistently outscore students that do not participate in music courses. There are behavioral benefits as well. There is a positive correlation between musical studies and improved attendance in school. There are also fewer discipline referrals, from reported for students that take part in music. As a result of these benefits, many colleges and universities place music as one of the primary academic subject areas in which students must participate in order to fully meet their potential.
