Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Upton District Curriculum
The curriculum revolves around 21st century skills outcomes, such as access to tools and resources, the cultivation of creativity and innovation, a social and emotional connection, informative assessments, and a relevant and applied curriculum. Nipmuc Regional High has three expectations of students with regards to 21st century learning skills, and each of these is further explained in a rubric that outlines characteristics of a student who is advanced, proficient, developing, and is receiving a warning to improve their skills in the area.
The first expectation is for students to clearly communicate for the targeted audience. Next, students should be able to solve problems and use higher order thinking skills. Lastly, they are expected to use technology to access information, enhance their creativity, and collaborate with others. By mastering these developmental and academic areas, students are prepared to meet the expectations of college and the workforce. The goal is to ensure students have the personal confidence to work independently or collaboratively on meaningful learning.

- Mendon-Upton Updates Curriculum Maps - As of summer 2015, Mendon-Upton is in the process of updating its curriculum maps to increase transparency for parents and students and "to create an open and easy-to-update means of checking the curriculum of a given course." A year and a half ago, the district adopted a new curriculum software, and it has been recognized for its use of the software. The district's curriculum director mentioned how, with curriculum maps being an online tool, they are very dynamic--living documents that can be changed at any time.
- Mendon-Upton Improves Its Website - Mendon-Upton has improved its district website to make it more user-friendly, better the flow, and improve its technology. The superintendent described the new website, which needed to be updated due to a change in the software, as not a drastic overall but a refresh. In the first website re-design since 2006, the district cleaned up and removed old documents and incorporated parent feedback.
- Mendon-Upton District a "Bang for Your Buck" - The Mendon-Upton Regional School District ranked 16th of all districts in Massachusetts on NerdWallet's "Best School Districts for Your Buck" list. The study considers several factors, including the cost of the living in the school district, standardized assessment scores, graduation rates, percentages of students who move on to attend college, and student-to-teacher ratios. The district's superintendent said the strong ranking validates the great work the teachers are doing and stresses that all the statistics are an important part of the ranking.
Chalk Talk: What Does an Athletic Director Do?
Although athletic directors are not very involved in academics, they play an important role in school districts. They have a daunting job, as they oversee all athletic programs and sports teams in the district. They create athletic schedules and are in charge of equipment for all the sports programs. They may give their input as to coaches who should be hired or fired. They may face a lot of pressure from parents who may want coaches fired because of their treatment of their child on a team. Athletic directors have the responsibility of making sure all teams are created as equally as possible. This is a challenge, as there will be more money set aside for and fanfare around the boys' football team than, say, the girls' volleyball team.
