Standards Revision in Fine Arts and World Languages

In 2012, the State Board of Education adopted the current version of Ohio’s Learning Standards for Fine Arts and World Languages. This year, as part of the revision cycle for content area standards, the fine arts and world language standards are being updated.

The updated standards in both disciplines are intended to be adopted by the State Board of Education in early 2020. After adoption, committees will be formed to create updated model curricula for each content area.


Advisory Committees

An advisory committee of education association representatives will review all survey comments. The committees will determine where changes are needed and refer those standards to the working groups to draft the revisions.

Volunteer working groups

Working groups of educators will draft proposed standards revisions based on guidance from survey feedback and the advisory committees.
