We believe that Wagoner's instructional programs should:

  • Provide students with engaging, hands-on problem solving activities to promote learning.

  • Set high standards and provide instructional support for student success.

  • Incorporate values, morals, and respect for self and others

  • Provide a variety of learning activities including shared reading, cooperative learning, and direct skills instruction.

  • Provide cross-curricular instruction.

Organization of Instruction

The School District has instructional levels for grades Pre-K through 8. The Superintendent shall annually present to the Board of Education a plan for organizing instructional levels and assigning them to school facilities in order to:

1. Support the District's educational program,

2. Maximize facility usage without undue overcrowding, and

3. Provide substantially comparable instructional programs across the District.

Students, for instructional purposes, may be placed in groups within a school that do not necessarily follow grade level designations. For purposes of attendance reporting and other records, however, each student is assigned a grade-level placement.


The District maintains a full-day kindergarten with an instructional program that fulfills the District's curriculum goals and objectives and the requirements of the State law. The District also offers a half day kindergarten for those parents/guardians who request a half-day program.
