Standards & Essential Materials

These Essential Standards have been collaboratively developed through the work of our MCSD teachers and teams over the course of the 2019-2020 school year. It is valuable for teachers and teams to revisit these standards every year in their planning.  We are required to teach all of the standards in our content area but the highlighted standards are those deemed so essential that teams will commonly assess and intervene on them. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your instructional coach or a member of the Teaching & Learning Team.  ​
