Curriculum Development and Grade Level Benchmarks

The Oskaloosa Community Schools has aligned its curriculum with the Iowa Core and created Learning Targets for students called Grade Level Benchmarks.  Each GLB describes what we expect students to know and demonstrate as part of a unit of instruction.  Components under the Grade Level Benchmarks are the content and skills needed to demonstrate successful completion of the Grade Level Benchmark.
