Grade Level Checklists

  • High and clear expectations, particularly for children, lead to higher achievement and performance, all else being equal. In an effort to make as clear as possible the expectations for children completing pre-school and kindergarten, staff in the Kalamazoo Public Schools created checklists for pre-school through grade 5. These checklists (links at the bottom of the page) serve as a guide to help prepare our students for college, and for success.
