Port Angeles School District Curriculum

Background Information

In the last few years, the Port Angeles School District focused much of its energy and resources on a literacy initiative.  While this effort has led to great gains, particularly in the area of reading, there are still gains to be realized in writing achievement.  In response to this particular need, the district Language Arts Curriculum Committee was commissioned to continue prior work to develop and implement a coherent district-wide language arts curriculum.

Washington State Guidelines

To ensure student achievement in language arts, it is critical that the curriculum, instruction, and assessment align. Washington State’s K-12 Learning Standards provide the foundation for the School District’s curriculum.
