A portal has been designed to manage regularly used district links, web-based applications and online curriculum resources into one easy to use location. This online portal is called the EGUSD Portal. The portal also offers you to access some of your network drives like H drive and department share.
The EGUSD elementary teachers teach students a novel curriculum based on California’s Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These are new educational content standards that address English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics, with ELA criterion counting literacy standards for science and history or social sciences.
These new criteria offer improved learning opportunities for EGUSD students. These benchmarks define the concepts and skills that every child studies. EGUSD phases in these new patterns from kindergarten through 12th grade over two years.
It includes math in grades K-2 and English Language Arts in grades 3-6. Teachers have been educated and are all set to instruct this new curriculum.
The criteria stem from a nationwide initiative to lay down an apparent and reliable development of learning across all states. In 2010, the California State Board of Education accepted these criteria with some additions exclusive to California.
These kindergartens through 12th grade standards offer an evolution of knowledge and proficiency that grooms students to graduate from high school and be prepared for college and careers. The criteria are research-based and worldwide benchmarked.
Parents may become aware of the effects of the Common Core State Standards. One instance is that, over time, students can read, understand and analyze more complicated text. A teacher may motivate a child to select books that are written at a more demanding level.
Besides, parents may observe more frequent writing homework. This consists of more writing inside core subjects of science and history/social science. In mathematics, parents may view their children making drawings or models to represent or make obvious their solutions to problems.
While studying the math facts (for example, “times tables”) is still vital, students will spend more time coming up with a solution to a “real-life” difficulty rather than frequently practicing the same type of problem. (A “real-life” problem might engage in designing option shapes for a rabbit pen enclosure if given some degree of fencing.)
The National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has dispatched resource guides by grade level to assist parents better comprehend what the execution of these criteria will signify for their children.
