Curriculum Development & Grade Level Benchmarks

The Oskaloosa Community Schools has aligned its curriculum with the Iowa Core and created Learning Targets for students called Grade Level Benchmarks.  Knowledge clip artEach GLB describes what we expect students to know and demonstrate as part of a unit of instruction.  Components under the Grade Level Benchmarks are the content and skills needed to demonstrate successful completion of the Grade Level Benchmark.  

Inserted ImageEach Grade Level Benchmark appears on the report card so parents can see what content and skills students are meeting expectations and which content and skills they are struggling to learn.  Parents can also visit the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus to check on the progress of their child for each Grade Level Benchmark.
