In elementary Social Studies instruction, our teachers follow the Washington Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs), which focuses on Civics, Economics, Geography, History, and Social Studies Skills. With Civics education in mind, an important goal of our District is to provide students with the skills and understandings they need to become effective and responsible participants in our democratic society. As citizens of a culturally diverse and increasingly interdependent world, our students are guided toward developing the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions with regard to the needs of regional, national, and global communities.
