Port Angeles School District Curriculum
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 reading and writing, it is critical that the curriculum, instruction, and assessment align. Washington State’s Essential Academic Learning Requirements, including the Grade Level Expectations, provide the foundation for the school district’s curriculum.
The Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs) outline the learning standards for grades K-10 at three benchmark levels: elementary, middle and high school.
The Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) provide detail about what students should know and be able to do by grade level.
