Standards-Based Education

About Standards-Based Learning

  • Our new Standards-Based Education system puts learning first, not “the grade.”With consistency throughout the district and at each grade level, students will maintain learning momentum when moving from grade to grade or from school to school.Because the standards will be clear and limited in number, students will understand what the learning goal is in each subject area. And we will measure each student’s progress against known and established milestones—not the performance of classmates.

    We are confident that a K-12 aligned system will be a more equitable process to instruct, assess and grade students.

    And more students can succeed when expectations are clear and transparent. Please go to the district website at https://www.fwps.org/cur/sbe/ to learn more about Standards-Based Learning (SBE).
