EKES Curriculum Guides

Note: The following are our current guides and power standards, but the school is in the process of adopting the Common Core in the areas of literacy and mathematics. As the adoption moves forward, we will update our curriculum materials.)

EKES Reading and Writing Power Standards

What are power standards? Power standards are the critical skills teachers are expected to teach students explicitly at each grade level. The power standards are sequenced in trimester maps to help teachers guide thier instruction for the year. Click on the links below to access each grade level's power standards in reading and writing. Included in each grade level link is: writing power standards, bi-annual writing rubrics to assess student progress, reading power standards, essential vocabulary all students are expected to know, and the school's spelling scope and sequence.

SAU 16 Curriculum

The district's curriculum guides and power standards are derived through review of both the SAU 16 curroiculum and grade level expectations outlined by the state. These standards and benchmarks have been developed in alignment with state academic standards and are based on local needs. To review the SAU 16 curriculum, click on the link below:
