K-12 Learning Standards

Battle Ground Public Schools follows the Washington State Learning Standards for all grade levels and subjects. The learning standards are developed through collaborative, public processes led by curriculum associations across the state and nation. The Washington State Learning Standards incorporate the Common Core State Standards for English language arts and mathematics.

The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) outlines four learning goals that provide the foundation for the development of all academic learning standards in Washington state. They are:

  • Read with comprehension, write effectively, and communicate successfully in a variety of ways and settings and with a variety of audiences;
  • Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical, and life sciences; civics and history, including different cultures and participation in representative government; geography; arts; and health and fitness;
  • Think analytically, logically, and creatively, and to integrate technology literacy and fluency as well as different experiences and knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems; and
  • Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities.
