           Common Core has become a household phrase for those involved with the school district. Across the nation schools are adopting more rigorous curriculum, and changing the way information is presented in the classroom. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is the name for the national education movement, but Kodiak Superintendent Stewart McDonald said not all states were required to adopt those specific standards.  
           “They had to have standards as rigorous as the common core state standards or their equivalent. And some standards opted to go with their equivalent. The new Alaska standards are essentially the common core standards with some significant differences. In language arts they made some adjustments in the earlier grades to make sure that developmentally those standards were appropriate. But in mathematics, the new Alaska standards that are common core based are actually arranged differently and broken into a better sequence through kindergarten through fifth grade. But after that they are essentially t he same thing as the common core state standards.”
             Jenny Schauf is the curriculum coordinator for the district and said the idea is that each grade level builds upon the one before, and students will be required to demonstrate knowledge learned in all previous grades, in addition to whatever they are learning for a particular academic year.  
             “So if you look at the kindergarten standards in reading, for example, standard one in reading is looking at text based evidence. At the twelfth grade level it is also looking at text based evidence, but it’s scaffolded. So at an early level the foundational skills are put into place so kids are specifically taught or expected to learn certain things so that when they get into the upper grade levels they are allowed to focus more on the content and not the foundational skills that are needed.”

          When residents at the Care Center relocate to the new long term care facility later this month, they won’t be moving very far. The new Providence Chiniak Bay Elder House is less than 400 yards uphill from the old facility, but the difference in living conditions will be dramatic. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs was able to tour the new building this week and found out just what Kodiak’s elder’s have to look forward to.
           There will be a community open house and ribbon cutting ceremony for the Chiniak Bay Elder House on Saturday from 11 a.m. and tours of the building will be given until 2 p.m.

    Host Colony won the tournament with 321.5 points, followed by Wasilla in second with 304 points and Kodiak with 214. Palmer, Kenai and Soldotna rounded out the field.

    The Kodiak High School Bears girls basketball team had another good weekend, sweeping the Palmer Moose up in the valley.
    On Friday, Jerica Nelson led Kodiak with 13 points and Megan Pyles added 12 to down the Moose 53-26. Carissa Cannon scored 10.
    On Saturday, the Bears won 39-to-21. Palmer only managed 7 points in the first half. Hannah Wandersee led the Bears with a dozen points, with Cannon and Megan Pyles adding 10.
    Kodiak is now 4-0 in the Northern Lights Conference, and remain undefeated overall at 16-and-0.
    The remainder of the Bears’ games will be here at home, giving fans a good opportunity to turn out and watch the best team in the state play some great basketball.

    The Kodiak boys were slated to play a two-game home series here against Palmer, but the games were postponed due to poor weather. They have been rescheduled for next Monday and Tuesday.
