State Board of Education Adopts New Academic Standards for Math and English

(Indianapolis)  The Indiana State Board of Education today adopted new academic standards for Math and English/Language Arts by a vote of 10-1. The adoption followed a months-long process that began last fall and included the inputs from Indiana educators, higher education faculty, content experts and community members. These individuals invested more than 6,000 hours towards the development of new college and career ready standards. Evaluation teams crafted draft standards informed by more than 2,000 public comments and input from independent evaluators. The work of the evaluation teams was then vetted, refined and ultimately endorsed by the College and Career Ready Panel. The Board expressed confidence in the rigor and strength of these standards and looks forward to turning its attention to a new state assessment aligned with the new Indiana college and career ready standards.

Several State Board of Education members issued statements regarding the new standards, which are attached to this release.
