Vernon District and Curriculum
Vernon Public Schools follow the Common Core Curriculum Standards as their instructional guidelines. These standards are designed to raise the expectations for the students and help propel them to compete on the international level. The standards exist as a series of grade level expectations which students need to meet in order to achieve proficiency in their courses.
We currently cover the following Vernon-area school district: Vernon Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vernon District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards have a strong focus on literacy in English language arts, including reading, writing, and speaking. Math and Science are supported by structuring the curriculum to allow in-depth understanding of key concepts. Students are then asked to delve deeper into understanding the subject matter. Fewer topics per year allow time for students to gain more than just a basic grasp.
Vernon Public Schools goes even farther by implementing a mechanism called Greater Expectations. This focuses on teachers and administrators to use real data to monitor student understanding. One example is the use of common assessments to that true student achievement can be compared. This allows teachers to make needed adjustments to ensure that no child is left behind. The district’s teachers also strive to use the best teaching practices available to teach. Overall, the district seeks to create a safe, positive learning environment for all students.

Chalk Talk: Resources for Budding Astronomers
Millions of students in every school in the country rely on food provided for them by the school district. School lunches, in some cases, are the only hot food that some students eat all day. What, then, are they feeding our kids? The fact remains that, in most schools, it isn’t good. High fat, fried, pre-packaged meals are the norm. Fresh fruits and vegetables are rarely found and instead the schools offer students greasy, fried foods instead. Studies have shown that healthy diets full of vegetables and fruits lead to higher achievements in the classroom. One school that has nothing but at-risk teenagers have dramatically cut down on behavior problems by only feeding their students wholesome food that is cooked fresh every day, not frozen and heated in the microwave. Parents should stand together and demand that all students have a wide selection of healthy, low-fat, fresh foods even if it means we pay a few more dollars in taxes, it is well worth it.
