Instructional Focus Calendars
The availability of an Instructional Focus Calendar is a standard practice within the district for reading, math and science. These calendars map the instruction of each benchmark and identify the window of testing for each subject. These calendars were initially mapped by teacher committees. Each spring teachers are surveyed for recommendations of improvement to the reading, math and science focus calendar. Teachers are then invited to participate in summer committee work where these recommendations are reviewed, along with the data from assessments and a draft of any adjustments is made. Once the calendars receive final approval they are available for download to the teacher's desktop at the start of the new school year. Assistant Principals are trained and in turn facilitate calendar implementation at their respective school sites. The expectation is that classroom instruction is planned around these calendars.
Students following a regular curriculum at Belleview Santos Elementary use the Marion County adopted textbooks:
