Math Curriculum

A Vision of School Mathematics: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Imagine a classroom, a school, or a school district where all students have access to high-quality, engaging mathematics instruction.

Plymouth-Canton Community Schools support the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics vision. Our curriculum is aligned to the Michigan Curriculum Framework standards and benchmarks as well as the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards. Students will have many opportunities to be engaged in mathematics that reflects real world application.

Everyday Mathematics is the official K-5 math program in our school district. This program engages students in activities that help them become mathematically literate. Everyday Mathematics meets the needs of all students through developmentally appropriate experiences.

'Read by Grade Three' Legislation 

Being a good reader is critical for a student to be successful in both school and in life. In 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed the Third Grade Reading Law to ensure that students are reading at-or-above grade level when they exit third grade. In accordance with the law, Plymouth Canton Community Schools assesses the reading skills of students in kindergarten through third grade throughout the school year. The intent is to help identify students who may need additional support in learning to read. The results of the assessments provide useful information to help teachers better meet the individual needs of each student.

The law states that beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, third graders may be identified using the Michigan Department of Education criteria to repeat third grade if they are behind in reading. This determination is based on a student’s Spring M-STEP reading score. M-STEP Criteria (Google Doc).

The links below offer families additional information and resources to better understand the impact this legislation may have on students. Families with specific questions related to their child’s reading progress should contact the classroom teacher or the building principal. General questions or additional information related to the legislation and the notification process can be directed to Maureen Molloy, Director of Elementary Education at
