Driven by information, powered by knowledge, and energized by technology, our world is changing quickly. In order for students to make reasoned decisions about their lives and contribute to their family, community, and nation, they need more skills and knowledge than ever before. To meet these challenges, Indiana has established and continues to maintain world-class academic standards. The standards clearly outline what students should know and be able to do for each content/subject area and grade level or grade band. In April of 2014, the Indiana State Board of Education approved the adoption of new standards for English/Language Arts and Mathematics. These new standards are the result of a process designed to identify, evaluate, synthesize, and create high-quality, rigorous standards for Indiana students. They have been validated as college and career ready by the Indiana Education Roundtable, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education, the Indiana Department of Education, the Indiana State Board of Education, and the Indiana Center for Education and Career Innovation. This means that students who successfully master these objectives for what they should know and be able to do in Math and English/Language Arts disciplines by the time they graduate from high school will be ready to go directly into the workplace or a postsecondary educational opportunity without the need of remediation.

The most up-to-date standards and resources for all subjects, including the new 2014 standards for English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, World Languages, and WIDA, can be accessed via the links below:
