Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Seneca District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in Language Arts and Math at each grade level. The English Language Arts curriculum consists of listening and learning, skills and guided and accountable independent reading. Listening and learning lessons include teacher read-alouds, class discussions, vocabulary work and additional integrated activities.
The revised Common Core Math Standards build a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals. The middle and high school standards require students to practice and apply mathematical ways of thinking to real world situations and challenges and prepare students to think and reason mathematically. West Seneca’s elementary schools program provides a solid foundation in basic skills and offer classes in art, instrumental music, physical education, health and safety. Technology is also integrated into the curriculum.
