What are the Addison Central School District Essential Learning Outcomes and Learning Targets ?The ACSD Essential Learning Outcomes (ELOs) are a cohesive set of PK-12 content area proficiencies that describe what students will know,understand, and be able to do by the time they graduate across ten content areas. Learning targets describe what it means to meet the ELOs within a contentarea at each grade span. The ELOs were developed and vetted during the 2015-2106 school year, and are aligned with state and national standards.How do we read the document?Each ELO appears on its own page. Thisis the ACSD “big picture” outcome.ELO 1.

The articulated targets enableteachers to assess students who are above or below grade level using a common ACSD language and create opportunities for students to reflect on theirown progress as they move toward proficiency. Used across content areas, the ELOs support interdisciplinary learning and enable connections amongconcepts, skills, and understandings.June 2016Page 2
