Mathematics - Standards


Standards-based education is the process of basic teaching, learning and assessment that focuses on national, state, and local educational standards. Academic Content Standards are statements of what students are expected to know and be able to do at specified grade levels.

On October 28, 2010 the State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which represent K-12 learning expectations for students in English-language arts and mathematics. The Common Core State Standards are the foundation of the Oregon Diploma. They reflect the same high academic expecations for all students, and have embedded in them the Essential Skills of reading, writing and applying mathematics.
