• The Belle Vernon Area School District recently adopted Pearson Reading Street Common Core Curriculum Resources for the K-6 English/Language Arts program.  These new curriculum resources will assist teachers in supporting higher levels of reading and writing while integrating media and 21st century skills.  Teachers will be addressing the newly adopted common core standards through these resources while exposing the students to a balance of fiction and nonfiction texts.  These resources will allow our students to apply their reading and writing skills through various activities and assessments.
