Curriculum & Assessment

The Glenwood City School District Performance Standards describe the expectations of what students will know and be able to do within each subject area. Each of the performance standards is aligned to a corresponding content standard which have been derived from blending Wisconsin Model Academic Standards (WMAS), Next Generation Science Standards, and previously-adopted Common Core State Standards.

Each grade level and subject area has a set of knowledge and skills based on the Glenwood City Performance Standards. As students progress through the district’s curriculum, their performance of skills and their demonstration of knowledge within the content area will become more complex and sophisticated.
