Educational standards in Wisconsin are designed to ensure a high-quality and consistent education for students across the state. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction establishes and regularly updates these standards, encompassing a broad range of subjects and grade levels. These standards cover areas such as English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and more. They serve as a guide for educators in developing curriculum, lesson plans, and assessments, fostering a cohesive and structured educational experience for students.

Academic Standards

Wisconsin Act 55 (section 120.12(13)) of the State Statutes requires school districts to notify the parents/guardians of students enrolled in the school district of the student academic standards that will be in effect for the school year. We will be providing this notice electronically through a link on the district website.

Additionally, the school board must annually include an item on the agenda during the first meeting after July 1 that clearly identifies the student academic standards.

The academic standards previously adopted by the D.C. Everest School Board that will be in effect for the 2023-2024 school year include:

  1. Wisconsin Common Core Standards for English/Language Arts and Math K-12.
  2. Next Generation Science Standards K-12.
  3. Wisconsin Standards for Social Studies.
  4. Wisconsin Physical Education/Health Standards.
  5. Wisconsin Standards for Music.
  6. Wisconsin Standards for Art and Design.
  7. National Core Arts Standards for Music and Visual Arts.

These current standards reflect the “Common Core State Standards” as formerly adapted to Wisconsin by the Department of Public Instruction (as of the end of 2014-2015 school year).
