Waimalu District and Curriculum
Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, Waimalu-area schools and the Hawaii State Department of Education (DOE) will be instituting a switch to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This switch has already occurred for several grade levels, but by updating the curriculum for all grades, the DOE hopes to better uphold the goals of Waimalu-area schools — to prepare students for their futures in competitive post-secondary education and career environments.
We currently cover the following Waimalu-area school district: Hawaii Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waimalu District Curriculum
The CCSS will replace the older No Child Left Behind standards. The biggest changes in the curriculum will occur in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. In English Language Arts, students will be exposed to a range of texts, including fiction, nonfiction, and informational. They will be expected to write analytically about each type of text. In Mathematics, students will be instructed in the logic of math, as opposed to simply the how of performing equations and functions.
To support this change in curriculum, the DOE will also be placing greater importance on digital learning materials in classrooms. Waimalu-area students should expect to see greater use of digital platforms in classrooms, which will help alleviate the use of outdated print materials. Giving students access to digital learning materials will also allow for greater personalization in education.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Reading
With nearly unlimited access to video games, social media, and television, many students find it difficult to get involved with reading for pleasure. Reading, however, is one easy way students can improve their grades across a variety of subjects. The act of reading not only serves to increase vocabulary, but also gives a better innate understanding of grammar and information ordering. Information learned from one subject isn’t just applicable to one small area, either. Each new piece of information connects with already learned information across a variety of subjects, building a better understanding of the world as a whole. Students who avoid reading because they find it difficult don’t have to miss out on the positive effects of the activity. Teachers and tutors are happy to help, which means that all students can not only reap benefits from the act, but also learn to enjoy it.
