Taking a Look At Our Curriculum
All curriculum areas are aligned to the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards. In addition, local benchmarks have been established by grade level and course for each curricular area. Within the District, there are eleven working curriculum committees, representing the various content areas. These curriculum committees are responsible for studying and evaluating curriculum based on a seven year cycle. With the passage of the referendum in the fall of 2006, the acquisition cycle for replacement of curricular materials in each content area is now seven years.
Within WRPS, there is a focus on continuous improvement. Annually, achievement is studied based on an analysis of the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concept Exams at grades 3-8 and 10, District assessments and classroom assessments. All of these assessment information sources provide data from which curricular strengths and areas for improvement can be determined.
