Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wayland District Curriculum
The district uses a balanced approach to literacy, as research has proven that there is no single approach that is beneficial for all students. Teachers use on-going assessments to make decisions about their instruction, use data to differentiate instruction, explicitly teach literacy strategies, and give students ample opportunities to practice reading and writing. Students read and write a variety of genres. There are three types of learning applied in elementary math at Wayland: conceptual, procedural, and applied teaching and learning.
These types of learning are embedded in a rigorous, balanced mathematical curriculum. There are many essential components to student success in math: strong instruction, a proven core program, an ample amount of direct instruction, student exploration of ideas, individual practice, class discussion, reasoning about mathematical concepts, and authentic problem solving. Through the program Everyday Mathematics, out of a 60-minute math block, students typically spend about 20 minutes engaged in whole-class activities and the remaining 40 minutes with activities that conform to their individual strengths, needs and levels.

Wayland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Wayland Public Schools serve five schools and 2,690 students. The district’s mission is to provide a nurturing environment that allows for academic risk-taking; cultivates students who are confident, collaborative, and contribute to a global society; challenges students; and instills the three qualities of civic responsibility, a love for learning, and empathy for others. The Assistant Superintendent is responsible for the curriculum and instruction and personnel—what is taught and how it is implemented all the way from kindergarten through 12th grade. Wayland Public Schools believe that literacy is the foundation upon which students’ learning is based and that reading and writing are essential skills for success in every content area.

Keeping Informed: Recent Wayland Educational News
- Wayland School Committee Member Awarded - Wayland School Committee member Malcolm Astley was recently named an “All-State School Committee Member” at the annual meeting of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees and the Massachusetts Association of Superintendents. Mr. Astley was recognized on the basis of his strong dedication to education and children as well as his clear understanding of the role he plays as a committee member. Mr. Astley has also turned tragedy—the loss of his daughter—into something positive, speaking out for victims of violence and on forgiveness and justice.
- New WSCP Director Has Wealth of Experiences - Patricia Keefe was recently hired as the director of Wayland School Community Programs (WSCP) for the district’s fee-based programs for students of all ages. The Massachusetts native brings experiences from her 24 years working in Illinois and even a period in Hawaii. She is a very musical person who enjoys being hands-on, visiting the programs several times per week. She hopes to observe other offerings in the community and other school districts and emulate any innovative ideas at Wayland.
- Wayland Middle School Students Give Less Fortunate Children “Room to Read” - This year, through a nonprofit program centered on literacy called Room to Read, Wayland Middle School was able to raise $1,000 to send 1,000 books to children in Asia and Africa, who may not have a single book in their homes. Students raised the funds by selling hair ties and through a book sale organized by the students and their English teachers during which they donated some of their own books.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Health and Wellness in the Schools
Students participate in a health curriculum that helps them become good consumers of health information. Students analyze various sources of health information and develop the skills necessary to determine what is valid and reliable, and that which is phony. Learners also use these skills to evaluate the services offered by local health organizations for effectiveness. Using TV ads, magazines, and information from the Internet, students evaluate the statements made by manufacturers of health related products. Common advertising techniques are identified, as are the impact those techniques have on purchasing behavior regarding health products and the manner in which young people perceive health related issues. The social aspect of physical fitness is explored as well. Learners identify the ways in which they can promote fitness and healthy choices for their friends and loved ones, and recognize the individual choices that can be made when it comes to nutrition.
