Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chico District Curriculum
The schools in Chico use a curriculum that details the objectives for instruction in each subject. The assessments given by the state are aligned to the expectations and outcomes in the curriculum. In English/Language Arts, the subject is designed around reading literary and informational texts, writing processes, and communication. This helps to prepare students for learning in other subjects.
The curriculum in Math covers numerical operations, algebraic operations, geometry and measurement, and statistics and probability. In Science, student learning covers earth and environmental science, biology, chemistry, physics and technology. Other specialized programs like small academies, have curriculum that describes the learning outcomes and the steps that bring them about.

Math Tutor Role
The role of the tutors is not to give answers, but to teach students skills that they can apply to their current and future assignments, and in class. Even if they aren't experts in your particular subject, they will look at it and try to figure it out. We can't guarantee that we can help with every problem, but we will certainly try!
