4J Prioritized Standards

The primary goal for the Eugene School District 4J is to raise student achievement for all students and close the achievement gap. In the interest of ensuring that all students have access to instruction in all of the Oregon state standards, teams of district expert teachers prioritized the standards for language arts, math, social studies, and health. The standards for other content areas will be priortized and updated with each new textbook adoption. This document identifies three levels of importance given for teaching these standards. The prioritized standards are identified with an E, I, or C.
  • Essential (E): Fifty-percent of the standards are identified as the first priority to teach.
  • Important (I): Thirty percent of the standards are identified as the second priority to teach.
  • Condensed (C): Twenty-percent of the standards are identified as the third priority to teach.
This document provides a guide for the development of teacher’s lesson plans, school-wide articulation and the textbook adoption process. Additional information on the Oregon State Standards is available at the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) web site (www.ode.state.or.us).
