Learning Targets / Curriculum

ACADEMIC LEARNING TARGET - The learning targets are the foundation of a standards-based learning system.  They describe the skills and knowledge students must master in order to succeed in each content area.  Learning targets are based on state and national standards. Learning targets are consistent across the District and developed in a manner to prepare students for success in the next grade level/course.
  • LONG-TERM LEARNING TARGETS (ALT) - The big ideas that define the learning within a specific content area. Student proficiency levels on long-term learning targets are (will be) reported on progress reports and report cards.
  • SUPPORTING LEARNING TARGETS (AST) - The supporting targets are used to define the learning necessary to become proficient on a long-term learning target. The supporting targets assist teachers with developing their instruction and assessments and will often be defined in a rubric.

BEHAVIOR LEARNING TARGET - The study skills and self-monitoring behaviors students must possess and demonstrate in an academic environment that are necessary for academic success.
  • ​LONG-TERM LEARNING TARGETS (BLT) - The essential behaviors students must possess and demonstrate in an academic environment. Student proficiency levels on long-term learning targets are (will be) reported on progress reports and report cards.
  • SUPPORTING LEARNING TARGETS (BST) - The supporting behavioral targets will define the smaller steps in progression necessary for students to develop the study skills and self-monitoring behaviors necessary for academic success.
