Ensuring a high quality educational experience and skills relevant to the 21st century
Welcome to the Sparta Curriculum and Instruction website.
There are many changes taking in education today and each and every
one impacts the children of the Sparta Area School District and the
State of Wisconsin.
So what are these changes? Let's take a look:
State adopted Common Core Mathematics and English/Language Arts
Soon to be adopted new Next Generation Science Standards
A new state-wide test called Smarter Balance which will replace
the WKCE Math and Reading tests.
A new standards based report card will be rolled out.
Required of all students in all grades by 2018. Sparta will
begin the process by implementing the new card next fall in grades
Kindergarten through grade 5.
As you can see these will have a direct impact on what is taught
and how it will be taught. There are other changes that will
shape how teachers and administrators are evaluated as well other
assessments that will be given in addition to the Smarter Balanced
Please check out the website. We think as you walk through
it, you will see many new things on your way through. You may
contact sites under construction from time to time and for that we
apologize in advance.
