inservice time teachers have had the opportunity to review the curriculum, and
begin the process of curriculum alignment. Through this process our courses of
studies have been revised to align with Ohio proficiency tests. Courses of study
will be available in all the buildings in the libraries during the spring.
This year we
will be evaluating new Math books. Teachers will be reviewing new Math books on
our third delay in January. A K-8 adoption is planned.
If you are a parent and would like to be part of this evaluation of books

Health books will be purchased at the middle School. Our health teacher Mrs.
Whitehair will also be reviewing books. According to Tusky Valley’s Continuous
Improvement Plan our district is progressing and meeting the needs of our
students, through our curriculum development realignment and revisions.
for this year will be the development of countywide testing procedures. Our
district will test all 3rd and 5th graders this year on
the new county predictor tests. These tests will be administered in March to
students during the week of proficiency testing. These tests will be 100%
aligned with the 4th and 6th grade proficiency tests. The
results will be of importance to next year’s teachers to identify areas that
students will need assistance with to pass the proficiency tests. Students in
grades 1, 2, and 7 will be given a new and updated version of county off grade
Tusky Valley has taken the initiative this year to incorporate a mentor teacher for all new teachers to the district. Through this collaboration teachers who are new to the district will find a helpful mentor teacher to guide them through the year.
