A Standards-Based Model for K-8 Education

Standards and Benchmarks are a broad description of what K-8 students in the Diocese of Madison should know and be able to do.


Catholic schools in the Diocese are expected to use the standards as a framework for their own curriculum development. A process for developing curriculum based on the guidelines is offered here in Curriculum Process. Catholic schools in the Diocese are also expected to deliver an integrated academic and religious education curriculum by presenting the teachings of the Catholic Church where applicable in the context of all subject matter.
