May 2019 Update

Work is underway to revise and enhance the math program as part of the district’s curriculum review cycle. Updates provided to the Board of Education at the May 21 meeting include:

  • Math consultant Kristen Clegg is working with the district’s math interventionists to look at assessments and the pacing calendar – what concepts are taught, the order in which they are taught, and how much time is spent on major and secondary concepts.

  • A homework task force for K-5 has formed and is defining the purpose of homework and uniform practices that are age-appropriate across all three elementary schools. The group will finalize their work before the end of the school year.

  • The district is in the final interview stages of hiring a math instructional specialist for the junior high.

  • Teachers have registered for summer professional development, including 13 sessions on math instruction.
