Curriculum 

Ever wonder what all those EGLCEs or EHSCEs that your child's teacher is always talking about look like?  Extended Grade Level or High School Context Expectations that your child is working on is available at www.mich.gov/md.

Michigan has adopted the Common Core State Standards as benchmarks in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics. Essential Elements to the Common Core State Standards are extensions of the standards to an appropriate level for students at Wesley School. These Common Core Essential Elements will eventually replace the EGLCEs & EHSCEs that your student follows. Stay tuned for updates as we begin transitioning to the Common Core Essential Elements!
 

Sexuality Education Curriculum

In June 2011, the MAISD Board of Education approved a curriculum focused on teaching students proper health and hygiene skills, how to build healthy relationships, and the knowledge and skills to avoid sexual behavior that increases the risk of STDs and unintended pregnancy. Students who have returned a signed permission slip from their parent/guardian may be exposed to this sexuality education curriculum.

The curriculum's overview and development, as well as the scope and sequence for teaching the topics are available below. If you have any questions or concerns about this curriculum, please contact Wesley School administration.
