Developing and maintaining a sold, standards-based core curriculum that aligns with state grade level expectations is the District’s most basic requirement. Common curriculum is used across the District, which means all students are taught the same learning objectives at approximately the same time regardless of the school they attend. The Sumner-Bonney Lake School District is committed to adopting high quality curriculum in all subject areas to promote academic excellence, creative problem solving and social-emotional learning, and ensure equitable readiness for careers and college.
Minimum Basic Education Requirement Compliance
The State Board of Education (SBE) collects compliance information annually online (through iGrants, Form Package 600) from each school district in Washington. Per WAC 180-16-195, annual reporting on this form gives assurance to the School Board that school districts are in compliance with the minimum requirements of the Basic Education Act under RCW 28A.150.220, as well as related requirements determined by the SBE.
