Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Plains District Curriculum
The public schools in White Plains follow the state standard for curriculum which is the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) for all grades. The Common Core Standards have been established to help standardize curriculum across the nation to ensure that all students receive the same level of education. They require students to show evidence of their thinking and be able to communicate in any subject. The curriculum concentrates on the same basic concepts while they advance to more challenging levels with increased opportunities for analytic and reasoning tasks.
The Common Core Curriculum for Language Arts applies the development of literacy and writing skills to History, Social Studies, Math, Science and technical curriculum. All students work on learning how to use critical thinking to analyze textual material to become able to discuss and write about their subjects. All students in New York must pass Regents exams in English, Global History, U.S. History, Science and Math.
