Curriculum & Assessment
The Fridley School District is committed to providing a high quality, challenging, international education through the International Baccalaureate Programmes for students in grades K-12. Hayes Elementary, Stevenson Elementary, Fridley Middle School, and Fridley High School are authorized IB World Schools. For information about learning though the IB, please visit the Fridley IB webpages.
Online Curriculum Maps
A curriculum map is a road map created collaboratively by our teaching staff to guide students on a meaningful and purposeful educational journey. Students should know where they are going, why they are going there, and what is required of them in order to get there. Although a variety of teaching and learning styles may result in teachers choosing to take different routes, the curriculum mapping process guides all students to the final destination—mastery and application of knowledge, skills, and understandings. Fridley schools use Atlas Rubicon to digitally store curriculum maps, and these maps are available to view here.
Since learning is an ongoing process, curriculum maps are never considered "done". Revisions are made continually and reflect the Fridley school district's commitment to preparing students for an ever-changing world.
The Fridley School District uses multiple assessments to provide teachers with information about their students in order to plan effective instruction and identify students who may need additional intervention or extension. Some assessments are required by state or federal legislation while others are used to meet state or federal program requirements. The schedule provided indicates the district-wide or whole-school testing. Teachers may administer additional subject or course related tests and assessments to measure individual student progress. The school district strives to maximize instructional time and create a balanced schedule throughout the school year.
For more information on statewide testing, please visit the MN Department of Education Statewide Testing site. This site includes Frequently Asked Questions, Parent Fact Sheets, and a Parent/Guardian Guide to Statewide Testing.
District and School Performance Data
The Minnesota Department of Education has created a Data Center for Parents providing the opportunity for parents to look at performance data for the school district and for individual schools. The Data Center includes information on student demographics, academic performance on state tests, progress of English language learners, graduation rates, college enrollment, staff qualifications, North Star Accountability System, and finances.
