The Inter-Lakes School District Design Principles

Grading & Reporting
This informational video below explains how our design principles are being implemented with our learners as they transition through the middle-high school. These practices will expand to grade 10 during the 2021-22 school year.
The Inter-Lakes School District Curriculum
Our district curriculum framework is competency-based; competency statements are global learning statements that encompass a number of standards. Our framework is comprised of academic and personal competencies.
Personal Competencies are essential skills, habits, and strategies learners need to actively engage and thrive in the learning cycle; these competencies support a successful educational experience. Personal Competencies promote success as well as facilitate learning.
Academic Competencies serve as measurement criteria for assessing student success. Competencies are further defined by standards or learning goals related to the competency. Each content discipline has created a competency framework to guide all instructional planning, assessment, and grading.
