Revision Timeline: Ohio's Learning Standards and Model Curriculum

When the State Board of Education adopts newly revised standards and/or model curriculum, districts should implement a transition plan within the next school year.

District considerations for implementation:
  • Complete a standards alignment analysis;
  • Align district-level assessments;
  • Provide professional learning opportunities for educators; and
  • Select and implement local curriculum.
The Department provides transition tools and professional learning to support districts with this implementation. The following standards and model curriculum are currently in the revision process.
