Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tarrant District Curriculum
Focusing on the core subjects and supplemental courses specified by the Alabama State Department of Education, the instructors of Tarrant City Schools are highly qualified and use modern instructional techniques. Tarrant is a close knit community and school system, as they were once a part of Jefferson County School District, and chose to diverge into their own school district. The key focuses of developing strong literacy, mathematic and scientific abilities are central to the schools efforts.
In history, the students of Tarrant learn about the historical aspects of their community, state, and country. Children in the primary grades learn about what it means to be a good citizen and to have good character qualities. Students learn that communities change over time, and they are taught the specific historical facts about the state of Alabama. Learning about the history of the community of Tarrant and the state of Alabama prepares them for learning about our country’s past in later grades.

Keeping Informed: Recent Tarrant Educational News
- Local Fundraising Efforts - When parents, community members, teachers, and students shop at Publix for their groceries, Publix will give a portion of the money to Tarrant Elementary School. The students were given two Publix cards to share with their family members, and once they check out and present the card, it calculates how much the school district will receive. Tarrant Elementary School will receive a quarterly check! This is a simple way for the school to be able to get the extra items teachers may need for their classrooms.
- Student Led Conferences - Tarrant Middle School has parent-teacher conferences with a twist. The students are in charge of the conference and they play an active role in reflecting on the progress made, the grades, and accomplishments. They will also tell the teacher (and the parents) short-term and long-term goals that they may have for the school year. These are a great opportunity for the teacher to see family dynamics, and it is a great opportunity for overall communication with the family. Tarrant Middle School takes pride in these types of conferences, and they take place throughout the school year!
- Public Service Announcements - Tarrant High School students have made videos for the purpose of Public Service Announcements. The topics include: America and Marginalization, America and Affordable Medical Care, and another on the subject of student loan debt. The videos are featured on YouTube, and they really bring to light some of the issues our country faces, but in a positive way. The students are the ones that are presenting their points of view, and they are unique videos because they are coming from high school students instead of adults. It is always nice to listen to what young adults think and recognize their point of view!

Chalk Talk: What is Homogeneous Grouping?
Some classes are grouped homogeneously, which means that the students are grouped by abilities. Homogeneous grouping usually occurs in upper elementary grades or middle school and high school grades. Students are grouped in particular classes, such as math and reading. There are various levels of mathematics courses and when the students are grouped together, they are basically all on the same track. The same concept can apply to English classes. Homogeneous groups work well for subject-specific grade levels.
