The Quakertown Community School District has developed a standards-based curriculum focused on high academic achievement for all students. Standards define what all students should know and be able to do. Our QCSD standards, developed from state and national standards, provide a basis for defining the curriculum at each level.
clearly state and define what will be taught and what students should learn in each subject at each grade level;
provide for consistency from classroom to classroom;
ensure logical progression in learning from grade to grade; and
make assessments clearer and meaningful, since the assessments are based on the standards. (From PA Academic Standards Family Connections Kit)
