Social Studies

The Kansas state standards for Social Studies were adopted on April 16, 2013.  The standards for each grade level and course, as well as Parent Guides for each grade level and course, can be found at the following link.  These are the standards we teach.  The state assessment at grades 6, 8, and 11 for History-Government and Social Studies is built upon these.
