Moving Along Together

WSSB is off to an exciting start of the school year with many activities in the classroom and beyond.  In addition to the core curriculum instruction, students have instruction and opportunities in the Expanded Core Curriculum.  This includes areas such as orientation and mobility, sensory efficiency, independent living skills, recreation, and more.  


 

Essential Skills Resources

Essential Skills - These skills are specific to WSSB students, yet may be more widely applied. While the first part of the year was spent focusing on developing these skill areas, these are skills will last the entire year and benefit students well beyond.

Shifting to Standards Based Grading

Standards Based Grading - WSSB is transitioning our grading practices to more accurately reflect each student’s demonstration of their learning through standards-based grades. Grades communicate how students are progressing with their learning based on standards.
