What do we want all students to know and be able to do?

All students are provided access to a broad course of study. The curriculum in each content area at the grade level is identified by the CA State Standards. Districtwide Professional Learning Community (PLC) Teams have identified the Essential Standards at their grade level. These standards can be thought of as the "power standards" or the "heart" of the grade level. All standards for the grade are taught, however, Essential Standards receive more time and attention.

The How and the When

Districtwide PLC Teams have developed and grade level curriculum maps which show when standards are taught throughout the year. Essential Standards are called out within the maps and emphasized during instruction. The Frameworks provide guidance from the state on how classroom instruction of the standards looks.
