Oklahoma is working to implement new academic state standards focused on preparing students for College, Careers and Citizenship ‐ the Oklahoma Academic Standards. This includes the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), adopted in 2010, for English language arts and mathematics for grades PreK‐12. Revisions of current state standards for remaining subject areas (social studies, science, visual arts/music, physical education, and world languages) began in 2012 and will continue until aligned with the goals of Oklahoma C3 Initiative.
Oklahoma Academic Standards serve as expectations for what students should know and be able to do by the end of the school year. The development, review and revision process involves stakeholders throughout the state of Oklahoma and is an ongoing and critical component to ensure Oklahoma students in every classroom receive current and relevant learning experiences.
