Curriculum & Classroom Portals

Grade Level Power Standards

  • Teachers, curriculum, standards, and assessment shape the learning experience for students in our district.
  • Power Standards help teachers focus and prioritize what is most important for students to know and be able to do in the time available for teaching and learning.
  • Of the state Grade Level Equivalents (GLEs), Power Standards are the ones that best represent the key skills, concepts and processes mastered at a given grade level.
  • Power Standards create the framework for teaching and learning.

Testing & Grades

  • State, district, and teachers look at how a student is doing in different ways. Everyone wants each student in the district to learn.
  • Teachers, administrators, parents, and community members all have the same goal. How can all these groups, and more importantly, students themselves, know if they are learning?
  • That is where grades and testing come in.
