 "How does what we are doing now correlate with the research?"


Included in the review cycle is a study of how the district's learner outcomes align with the Basic Skills Tests, the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments and the new Minnesota Academic Standards; all of which are part of Minnesota's Graduation Standards.

Inclusion, diversity, multiculturalism, gender fairness and technology integration, are also assessed during the cycle. As the teachers and administrators work throughout the process, feedback is sought from the Curriculum and Instruction Advisory Committee.
