Curriculum & Assessment

Welcome to the Wautoma Area School District! A focus on student learning is encouraged in all areas of academic, social, emotional, physical and development.  Student learning is embedded in all areas of our schools and is the heart of our district. All district staff are involved with creating a positive culture and climate within our schools, which is a foundational component for the success of our students.

In order for the Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment (CIA) Department to make sound decisions, we are committed to continuous improvement of our curriculum and best instructional practices where all students can learn. During Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) (R. Dufour, 2010) within each of our schools, we continually examine these essential questions listed below:

  • Goals and Expectations

  • How will we know they are learning?    

  • Assessment

  • How will we respond when they don’t learn?

  • Intervention

  • How will we know if they already know it?    

  • Enrichment
