for Future Ready Students in the Tahoma School District

Skill Grid for Website

In Tahoma, we are committed to our graduates leaving us with the knowledge, skills, and ability to succeed in the next steps of their lives. Our strong academic program is just one component in ensuring all students have what they need to create an individual, viable, and valued path to lifelong personal success. Our academic program is largely guided by our Tahoma curriculum and instruction model, along with Washington State's academic standards. The district's nine Future Ready Skills address the skills and dispositions that are essential to success yet aren't typically found in traditional curriculum. These skills provide teachers and students with an important focus beyond academic curriculum and content. Teachers in our district, in addition to formally and informally teaching and incorporating these skills, provide regular opportunities for students to practice and reflect upon their growth in these skill areas.
