Academic Standards At Freedom Schools

The Freedom Area School District has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Language Arts, Disciplinary Literacy, and Math, and we are currently implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in Science. The district also implements the Wisconsin Model Academic Standards in Social Studies and all related arts areas including Music, Art, Physical Education, Health Education, Foreign Language, Family and Consumer Education, Agriculture Education, Business Education, and Technology Education. The Information and Technology Literacy Standards are being infused into all curricular areas. The District has also initiated a standardized Response to Intervention (RtI) Program. All students are universally screened in grades K-12, and the results of these exams are used to identify individual students who may need additional support or those who need to be accellerated. Each school incorporates RtI time in their schedules to meet the needs of al students. The District is also using PALS testing, Fountas and Pinnell benchmark screenings, and ongoing summative and formative assessments to guide individual instruction.

Build Your Own Curriculum

Beginning in the fall of 2008, we implemented Build Your Own Curriculum (BYOC). This is a web-based program designed to meet the curriculum needs of students and parents. Students can look at the standards they're  expected to learn and master, see class activities and retrieve the resources they'll need to complete their work.  Parents have the opportunity to view curriculum, and standards from home, work or library - anywhere you can access the internet.  Parents can look at curriculum online and know what your students are learning each week.  Please click the link below to access the Freedom Area School District Online Curriculum. We are currently in the process of updating our curriculum on the BYOC website. Should you have questions regarding our curriculum while we are updating, please contact your building principal.
