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.
