Markesan District Goal 2018-2019

All students will grow reading stamina and comprehension skills by applying critical literacy skills and  strategies to read and analyze texts, including text with graphics and interactive elements. Educating Every Student Every Day Markesan District Schools work to educate every student every day. Our lessons, curriculum, and assessments are designed to help each student grow and achieve. Teachers dedicate time and talent to planning for student needs. Inservice time is devoted to studying student needs, through both data and observation, and taking actions through plans and programs, to work for the success of every student.


The Markesan District Curriculum is aligned to the Wisconsin State Standards.
