Parent Roadmap to Common Core Standards
Below is a link to the Common Core Standards your children will be learning and how you can support that learning. These parent roadmaps, for each grade level, also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school. Common Core Standards
We are asking that all students bring a pair of headphones in to school for use in the computer lab, as well as for using in the classrooms and other devices. Headphones will be labeled with student names and kept in Ziploc bags.
Late Start/Early Release Schedule 2013-2014
This year we have scheduled five Late Start/Early Release Days. On those days secondary students will start later than normal, and elementary will dismiss earlier than usual. Teaching staff will spend the time analyzing student achievement data, determining next steps to make a difference, curriculum development, and other related school improvement work.
District Messaging System
This year, Vicksburg Community Schools is changing vendors when contacting you with a general or an emergency district message. In order for us to contact you, we must have your correct phone number, email address, and your contact preference. The District Messaging System works in conjunction with Infinite Campus. If you already have an Infinite Campus account, be sure to update your phone number, email address and contact preference through the parent portal.
