Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Worcester District Curriculum
The five phase curriculum renewal process is a sequential process that leads to curriculum enhancement in all subject areas. Phase 1 is the definition of standards, student needs and curriculum scope and sequence. Phase 2 is instructional evaluation and alignment of research-based tools, materials, technology and professional development. Phase 3&4 is the implementation of the pilot curriculum and collection of data. Phase 5 is the development of policies to ensure equity and the alignment of professional development.
A rubric is developed and redefined in the Phase 1&2 to guide curriculum construction. Throughout the curriculum renewal process the professional development of educators is considered. Students are included in every phase because each phase effects their academic progression and assessment. Allowing students to have input in the curriculum alignment makes transition and implementation of the new curriculum more efficient and effective.

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: The Importance of Parental Involvement
Parents spend formative years with their children and have insight that would be helpful in teaching the student. The community – school gap that exist between parents and educators may be one crucial component to closing the learning gap. Parents, community leaders and educators form the learning community. All members of the community must communicate and work together to create productive citizens. The first schools in American were based on parent involvement and viewed parents as the primary and only source of education. The shift toward public education resulted in less parent involvement. To increase parent involvement parents are encouraged to: ask questions to clarify information, identify and share the needs and strengths of their children, and become actively involved in the learning process.
