Washington also has learning standards in Integrated Environment and Sustainability, World Languages, Career and Technical Education (frameworks and industry standards for middle and high school), English Language Proficiency (in ELA, math, and science), as well as guidelines for HIV & Sexual Health and Early Learning (birth–3rd grade) that complement a well- rounded education for all students.

Special education: Students who receive services have accommodations, modifications, and supports identified in their individual education plans.

English learners: Students who are learning to speak English have language proficiency standards that help teachers plan instruction across subjects that is appropriate to each student’s level of language development.

Washington State Learning Goals

The Washington State Legislature has established four learning goals to provide the foundation for the development of all academic learning standards in the state:

  1. Read with comprehension, write effectively, and communicate successfully in a variety of ways and settings and with a variety of audiences;
  2. Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical, and life sciences; civics and history, including different cultures and participation in representative government; geography; the arts; and health and fitness;
  3. Think analytically, logically, and creatively, and to integrate technology literacy and fluency as well as different experiences and knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems; and
  4. Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities.
