Learning

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Throughout the grade levels students engage in a sequence of learning experiences built on learning standards in core academic, specials and elective areas.  Frederic utilizes Common Cores Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics.  Standards in other academic areas come from state and national organizations as well as locally established standards for example, keyboarding. The learning experiences in our classrooms are based on academic standards previously adopted by the State of Wisconsin.  

With the start of the 2018-19 school year, the Board of Education for the Frederic School District will specifically adopt the standards for our District, and then continue to do so on an annual basis.  

English Language Arts - The State of Wisconsin adopted the Common Core State Standards in June of 2010. The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) articulate rigorous grade-level expectations in the areas of reading, writing, speaking, listening to prepare all students to be college and career ready.  Instruction in the Frederic School District during the 2016-17 school year will be based on continued use of the Common Core State Standards in the English Language Arts.

Mathematics - The State of Wisconsin adopted the Common Core State Standards in June of 2010. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics articulate rigorous grade-level expectations in mathematics to prepare all students to be college and career ready.  Instruction in the Frederic School District during the 2018-19 school year will be based on continued use of the Common Core State Standards in the Mathematics.
