Owatonna District and Curriculum
The Owatonna Public Schools adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects to ensure that students are college and career ready by the completion of high school. The state of Minnesota collaborated in the development of the CCSS, and many of the suggestions rendered by Minnesota educators were incorporated in the standards. The standards follow along major topics of each subject and increase the complexity each year.
We currently cover the following Owatonna-area school district: Owatonna Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Owatonna District Curriculum
The K-5 standards include proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, listening and language applicable to a variety of disciplines, including ELA. The standards for grades 6-12 are divided into two sections, one is ELA, and the second is history/social studies, science and technical subjects. The College and Career Readiness (CCR) and high school standards work in unison to create assessments.
The Science standards require students to understand content related to biology, chemistry and physics, earth and environmental science, and technology. From the early grades, students are given hands-on opportunities to engage in scientific exploration. They learn how to form and validate hypotheses, conduct and design scientific experiments, and develop scientific literacy with which to communicate their findings.

Chalk Talk: Individualized Plans for Career and College Readiness
Young Minnesotans can start planning for a successful transition to post secondary education and employment through Personal Learning Plans. Students entering 9th grade are required to have a Personal Learning Plan centered on eight key elements. The guide includes academic scheduling, career exploration, career and employment related skills, community partnership, college access, all forms of post secondary training and experiential learning opportunities. The plan is revised and revised annually by the respective student, parents and school to ensure that the child is on track and making progress to meet state and local academic standards and high school graduation requirements. The goal is to have the student successfully enter the workforce and/or post-secondary education by giving them time to plan for and envision their path to success. With clear expectations in place, young adults will feel more prepared to take on more responsibilities.
