What are Essential Outcomes? 

Definition of Essential Learning – “The critical skills, knowledge, and dispositions each student must acquire as a result of each course, grade level, and unit of instruction. Essential learning may also be referred to as essential outcomes or power standards.” – Learning by Doing, p 215. 

Every grade has written Essential Outcomes and monitors student progress towards these outcomes regularly throughout the school year. If you have questions about the Essential Outcomes please talk with your student's classroom teacher.
