Proposed Academic Standards Online for Public Review

The State Board of Education established a steering committee to develop new standards in math and English/language arts by 2016 after the Legislature passed a law last year repealing Common Core standards.

Drafts of the proposed Oklahoma academic standards for math and English/language arts are now available for public review online.

State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister is encouraging interested Oklahomans to review the proposed standards, which cover pre-K through 12th grade.
