The State Board of Education has adopted the Ohio Revised Standards in Social Studies as part of Ohio's New Learning Standards for academic learning. The Kindergarten - Grade 12 standards will be fully in use in Ohio classrooms by 2014-2015. ODE encourages districts to start implementing the Ohio's New Learning Standards: K-12 in Social Studies now to better prepare students for 2014-2015 and beyond.
In October 2013, Career Connections strategies were added to the Instructional Strategies in the model curricula.

Pursuant to ORC 3301.079 (B) (3) and 3313.60, it is the responsibility of Ohio's local boards of education to vet and approve curriculum and educational materials for use in the public schools within their district. The use of any materials posted or linked to on the Ohio Department of Education website, including materials within the Common Core State Standards or Appendices or any state model curricula or other educational resource material, is entirely up to the discretion of each local board of education.
