Ohio's Learning Standards for Social Studies
Ohio educators, many of whom engage daily with Ohio students, drove the process to make improvements to Ohio’s Learning Standards for Social Studies as part of a periodic review. In many cases, the changes reflect instruction already taking place in Ohio’s classrooms. The clarifications in the revised standards will guide districts in modifying, but not replacing, their existing local curricula, instructional plans and materials. In addition to the standards that now are available, the work of updating the Model Curriculum is currently ongoing and will provide additional resources to help educators learn about, and begin using, the revised standards.
To give districts time to align instruction and resources, Ohio allows them until the 2020-2021 school year to fully implement the revised 2018 Ohio’s Learning Standards for Social Studies. State tests aligned to the standards will commence in the 2020-2021 school year.
