Standards Based Education

What is Standards Based Grading?

  • Federal Way Public Schools’ standards-based education system establishes challenging and appropriate learning targets for all students.

    We do this in every course, at every grade level, and in every classroom. We use standards-based education across the district to ensure our entire students graduate with the critical knowledge and 21st century skills.

    Standards Based Eduation is:

    • Standards-based learning provides the foundation for 21st century learning opportunities that prepare students for today, tomorrow and the future.
    • Provides a fair and objective way to evaluate students based on what they have learned while providing the appropriate level of challenge and rigor.
    • Gives teachers a powerful system for teaching.
    • Helps parents be knowledgeable participants in their students’ education.
