PARENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
“Our Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor has provided excellent academic support to my 7th grade son. Last year we had battles and tears over homework. This year with Jerry’s weekly tutoring, not only has my son’s resistance to homework and studying decreased, his grades have gotten better and better with Jerry’s help and guidance. He has an ability to relate to my child that somehow engages and challenges him to think at the same time. He never tells my son what the answers should be, but asks good questions, turns learning into something fun and provides clear academic structures and support all at the same time. He is easy to work with and a delight to have found. I’m happy that my son is so agreeable to working with him and I, for one, couldn’t be happier with the services we have received from Y3K. Everything from science lab reports, to math and writing Jerry seems to have a way to help both my son and me through the homework and demands of 7th grade.”

ALICE (Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate) calls for alerting the police and implementing a lockdown in response to an armed attacker. This in itself is standard procedure in all schools. ALICE takes it a step further by training students and teachers to consider other options such as evacuating or fighting off the attacker. Teachers and students are trained in ways to stop the gunman as a last resort, if there are no other options.
What do you think about your kids being trained to fight off a gunman in school?
After the Newtown, CT school shootings, schools have had to beef up security. Besides cameras and locked doors, some schools are turning to a new controversial method to keep our kids safe. Some school systems are turning to ALICE (Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate) which is a training program offered by a Texas based company that promotes alternatives to staying put when a gunman enters a school. Tomorrow we will uncover details about this controversial program.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative will trigger a higher level of critical thinking and deeper understanding into your child’s curriculum. There will also be a new standardized test in English and math. The Common Core benchmarks will be supported by one of two new standardized tests in the 2014-2015 school year.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative seeks to standardize and improve education across the nation. Another major change due to Common Core State Standards Initiative to be on the lookout for is in math. Students will be required to show more work in solving math problems. Tomorrow we will have more Common Core State Standards Initiative changes to be aware of.
New public school standards for learning called the Common Core State Standards Initiative will launch this fall in 45 states across the United States including Massachusetts. There will be changes in your child’s education due to the new standards. One of the major changes will be the inclusion of more nonfiction reading and persuasive writing in all grades. Check here tomorrow for more Common Core State Standards Initiative changes to watch out for.
