In the Evansville Community School District, academic standards serve as rigorous goals for teaching and learning. Setting standards enables students, parents, educators and citizens to know what students should be learning at a given point in time. Clear statements about what students must know and be able to do are essential to ensure that our schools offer all students the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for success. ECSD aligns curriculum at all grade levels to the Wisconsin Academic Standards, including the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Literacy in All Subjects, and Reading. These academic standards will be in effect for the 2016-17 school year.
