to the Middle and Secondary Education Department of the Jackson County School Board. In an ever changing world, students must have the tools necessary to deal with the issues they will face. Technological advances, a competitive society and complex societal issues necessitate a program that will help all students develop their educational, social, career and personal strengths. Your awareness of what your child should know and be able to do during each of his/her school years will assist you in ensuring a successful learning experience. We encourage you to communicate with your child's teacher and school for the specifics of what you can expect, and of course, to answer your questions.
The curriculum of the Jackson County School Board is based on high standards of student achievement and incorporates Sunshine State Standards, national standards and current research on learning. Benchmarks or expectations of achievement (what each child should know and be able to do) at the end of each grade level in each content area are included in the Links section for you to peruse. Being familiar with these benchmarks/expectations will help you monitor your child's schoolwork, projects and assignments. Additionally, this should help you communicate with your child's teacher and to reinforce classroom lessons at home.
