Reporting and Priority Standards PreK-12
Academic Reporting and Priority Standards
Priority standards were identified from state, national, and international standards by core teams which included K – 12 grade teachers, instructional coaches, and principals. The process for identifying reporting and priority standards was consistent, comprehensive, and systemic. The criteria used to identify the most essential standards included:
- Endurance: Those standards that provide students with knowledge and skills beyond a single test date.
- Leverage: Those standards that provide knowledge and skills that will be of value in multiple disciplines (example non-fiction writing).
- Readiness: Those standards that provide knowledge and skills that are necessary for success in the next grade or level of instruction.
An accordion process was used for disseminating and obtaining feedback on reporting and priority standards. The standards were sent out for review and feedback. The Core Teams reviewed feedback, refined and made changes as appropriate. This process was conducted twice for each set of reporting and priority standards.
Reporting and Priority standards contained on this site are subject to slight modifications.
Standards describe what scholars should know and be able to do. In Federal Way Public Schools, we organize our course or content standards by both reporting and priority standards. Please see the definitions below to better understand each type of standard and how they support Standards-Based Grading and Reporting.
