A brief summary of the topics presented and information shared during discussion is provided below.

Curriculum Updates


Dr. Jamie Whye, Assistant Superintendent, provided the group with some curricular updates. She briefly outlined the process used to review and revise curriculum through mini-curriculum committees, which consist of classroom teachers and administrators. This year’s focus has been on elementary math and English language arts, largely due to the increased rigor on the state assessments. Several discussions have been held regarding math placement criteria at all levels. 

Dr. Whye also discussed the process for evaluating and purchasing textbooks for the elementary math program to be implemented during the 2015-2016 school year, pending Board approval. 

On a final note, Dr. Whye asked members for their input on what they would like to see made available to parents on the District’s curriculum website. Members of the community are also being asked for their feedback. Please email suggestions on what you would like to see available to Dr. Whye at jwhye@wssd.k12.pa.us.

Other Updates


Dr. Stoltz reviewed several topics, including the 2015-2016 school calendar, marching band update, and mini-THON events at Cedar Cliff and Red Land.

Community members are reminded they can submit ideas for future topics of discussion to any District Voice representative.
