As a learning community, Tracy Unified School District strives to create a caring, challenging and inclusive education environment that offers every student the opportunity to achieve his or her potential. The district has clearly defined its grade-level standards so students, parents and teachers can easily understand the expectations students must meet to progress from one grade to the next.
All schools in our district share a common core curriculum that includes integration of technology and development of critical thinking skills. Our district curriculum and standards were designed to meet or exceed the important curriculum standards established by the State of California. When district textbooks and other teaching materials are selected for students, we take care to make sure the textbooks and materials align with state and district standards. We also consistently assess student achievement to monitor every student’s progress towards meeting district standards and to review our curriculum to maximize its effectiveness.
By knowing the grade-level standards, parents are better equipped to take an active role in their student’s education. Parents can use this information to do activities at home that reinforce the skills teachers are helping students develop in the classroom. As reading is the foundation for learning, reading regularly with a child at home is the best activity a parent can do to aid a student’s achievement of any grade-level standard.
Through a strong partnership between home and school, students develop a lifelong love of learning and are encouraged to give school their best effort every day.
