Essential Learning Outcomes and Assessments

  • Continue to refine and enhance implementation of Essential Learning Outcomes and assessments in core content areas

    Why: Over the past year, we have aligned essential learning outcomes in core areas at the K-5 level to external standards to ensure a guaranteed and viable curriculum, and to prepare students for rigorous coursework at the secondary level. The future implementation of embedded college, ensuring all students have access to rigorous curriculum, and a need to continuously improve student learning, requires an in-depth review of our current essential learning outcomes and assessments at the secondary level to ensure alignment to college-ready standards and provide teachers with clarity of student learning targets.
