Del Roble Elementary School, 5345 Avenida Almendros, San Jose, CA 95123, Portable 3.

The Oak Grove School District is offering two instructional program options for TK-8 families enrolled in ISP. Both curriculum options are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Option 1: For K-8 grade students, the EngageNY curriculum in English Language Arts and Math is provided. The curriculum provided for Science and Social Studies is the current, district-adopted curriculum.

For students in Transitional Kindergarten, the standards are a blend of the preschool foundations and the Kindergarten common core standards. All curriculum include a grade level teacher’s guide, student workbooks, and all supporting materials.

Option 2: For TK-8 grade students, the online k-12 curriculum is offered in English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, as well as one elective course in Art, Foreign Language, or Music Appreciation.

This is a personalized educational option that helps students reach their potential and achieve their goals. Key success factors for students using the online program includes the exceptional curriculum, the individualized learning program, and support from professional, dedicated teachers. Reading books, student workbooks and supporting materials will be mailed to the student’s home to use and return at the end of the year.

ISP Highlights:

  • Students will conference individually with the ISP teacher several times a year for guidance on progression through the curriculum and to assess growth and measure mastery.
