Missouri Learning standards
The Missouri Board of Education historically and still today determines the curriculum outlining what our state's children K-12 in all subjects should know and be able to do. Those are called the "Missouri Learning Standards" (MoLS), which became effective 2014-15. You may be familiar with the prior/current versions known as our GLEs.
Here in Ray-Pec, our teachers, administrators and curriculum leaders develop and set our own local learning targets, power standards, teaching units, and assessments for our students according to what we believe is best for them to help them to reach our local goals and the MoLS. Curriculum is a living and breathing thing,and we continuously review and improve it to best reach and engage our students in learning what they need to know and be able to do in rigorous, relevant ways to be prepared for a successful and meaningful life in the 21st century.

Teachers from around our state as well as other states worked to write, review and field ways to assess student progress toward the Missouri Learning Standards (MoLS). There are many resources from which our teachers will continue to draw in teaching and learning toward the standards, but you can check out a few sample questions below.
