Wichita District and Curriculum
The area districts teach Math, Reading, Social Studies, Science, and Writing according to the Kansas State Department of Education Assessed Standards. The Math program places an emphasis on a student’s ability to explain why a certain mathematical formula is true, not solely that it is true. They also believe a sign of educational maturity in math comes when a student is able to explain the rule behind each procedure. In this way, a truer understanding of the principles of mathematics is accomplished and great success rates are achieved at higher levels.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wichita District Curriculum
In Language Arts, teachers instruct using the Common Core State Standard Initiative, as well as the Lexile Scoring Program. This provides a consistent and clear understanding of what students need to learn in each grade in order to succeed not just in school, but also in life. It is anchored in the expectation that students will meet certain grade-specific requirements in order to succeed at the next level, placing an emphasis on spelling, grammar, and comprehension. Teachers also have the ability to use secondary materials, such as flip-books, workbooks, and flip cards.
Science instruction adheres to the same Kansas State Department of Education Assessed Standards and provides a strong combination of conceptual learning and in-class experiments. Students often have the ability to conduct their own research and are expected to report their results in a structured manner.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Correct Spelling
With schoolchildren using the internet and their smartphones to communicate now more than ever, it is important to realize the decline that this is having on their ability to spell correctly. The Department of Education has recently expressed concern over students using IM shorthand in class and in actual school papers. While the English language is, and always will be, a fluid language, a standard must be upheld. And that standard-bearer must be the public schools. This is where the next generation of thinkers and creators will learn the skills they'll need to navigate the world. Don't we owe it to them to teach them the gift of clear and correct communication?
