• Washington State Standards

    The Washington State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
    The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrations and education experts to establish clear and consistent goals for learning that will prepare our students for college and the workforce.  These standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education ensuring they will graduate from high school and be able to succeed in entry-level, credit bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs.
