Minnesota has adopted academic standards in the areas of language arts, mathematics, the arts, social studies and science. State standards were developed and revised through a committee and public hearing process and presented to the legislature for approval.
The standards provide a summary description of what students know or are able to do within a particular subject area and at a particular grade level.
Grade-level benchmarks specify the academic knowledge and skills that schools must offer and students must achieve to satisfactorily complete a state standard.
Moorhead Area Public Schools has incorporated the core language arts, science and social studies standards for all K–12 students. Other district developed standards have been incorporated into the K–12 curriculum. The district has benchmarks for each grade level as described in the grade-level expectations in the elementary progress reports.
