Washington students need critical skills for life after high school. By equipping our educators with the most up-to-date information about pathway planning, learning standards, and aligned assessment, we can better prepare each learner for education or training after high school and the career of their choice.
Washington’s K-12 learning standards provide rigorous benchmarks for what our students should know and be able to do. Educators can use our tools and resources to answer questions from students and parents.
Learning standards focus on real-world skills––such as problem-solving, critical thinking, and writing––and ensure each student will leave school with a deeper understanding of fundamental subjects.
