Essential Skills

What are essential skills? Essential skills are discussed and identified by our curriculum teams made up of teachers. They are the individual skills that a student needs to learn at high levels in order to "have a chance" to be successful the following year or class. Essential Skills are derived from our State Standards or specific standards that are relevant to the curriculum area.
