MCFDS provides a rigorous, accessible, integrated curriculum framework that is vertically articulated by each class and aligned to core standards
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what pupils and students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.
Homework is a meaningful extension of classroom instruction that reinforces, enriches, and builds upon what is learned at school. The amount of homework varies according to age, ability, and needs of students. Teachers, parents, and students all have vital roles and responsibilities in the homework process. Make-up work is completed in a reasonable time following an absence. Students will be allowed to make-up work for all excused absences
Students are provided an opportunity to make up class work for all excused absences without academic penalty. It is primarily the responsibility of the student to make necessary arrangements with his/her teacher to complete missed work in a reasonable amount of time. A student who is suspended will be allowed to make up work for full credit during that period of suspension.
DAILY SCHEDULE FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
This consists daily of a 90-minute reading block and 60-minutes of mathematics. During different times in the week, students will also participate in science, social studies, art, music, and physical education in different proportions depending on the school program. Students in special education are expected to have the opportunity to participate in the general curriculum to the greatest extent possible.
Outdoor recess periods will be observed each day except in inclement or severe weather. All children will be expected to go out with the class unless officially excused for health reasons by a note from home each day or a physician’s statement in order for the child to stay in for long periods of time.
