Curriculum and Assessment


Our teachers here at JRES are using the Common Core Standards as their guide for curriculum in reading and math. Both our Reading and Math series correlate with these new standards.We will be implementing the Next Generation Science Standards in all grade levels. For other subjects, teachers are still using the Kentucky Program of Studies to guide their instructions. Common Core Standards are being developed for the other subject areas but are currently only in a draft form. To find out more information you can visit the websites below:

Here at JRES students are assessed in different ways through the school year. Teachers are embedding formative and summative assessment within their content.This year our district has designed common assessments in reading and math to give district wide.  We will be giving the STAR assessment to students to assess in both reading and math. In addition to this, students in grades 3-6 will take the KPREP at the end of the year. We feel at JRES that we do NOT teach "to the test" but use the common core standards and Kentucky Program of Studies to teach students the content they need to excel and become college, career and citizenship ready!
