Academic - LeConte Elementary BUSD


The Berkeley Unified School District Board of Education has adopted the California Department of Education / California State Board of Education standards in mathematics, English-language arts, science, and history-social studies, and the challenge standards in the visual and performing arts.

The Standards outline specific areas of knowledge that students are taught during a particular grade. Every BUSD school, including LeConte, teaches an academic curriculum designed to meet these California Standards.

Each fall parents/guardians receive an overview of their students’ grade level standards. A detailed description of all California Department of Education standards is available on the CDE website: The following pages are a summary of what is required by grade level.
