The Ohio Department of Education began updating Ohio’s Learning Standards in English language arts and mathematics in early 2016 with the help of our state’s educators. This school year, we will start updating Ohio’s science, social studies and financial literacy standards. Our purpose is to better prepare our students for the rising expectations of colleges and employers. As we do the work, we are drawing on teachers' and parents’ experiences with the standards.
