Many schools, ours included, have adopted the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, which outline what learners need to be able to do at each level.

The entire framework for the CEFR can be found here. There’s also an excellent Teacher’s Guide to the Common European Framework, which can be found here.

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were informed via international bookmarking and are available here. They currently inform science in our middle school and will be fully integrated into our K-12 curriculum during our next curriculum cycle update for science. Other grade levels are currently aligned with the Washington State Standards for science.
