Indiana Academic Standards: PTSC Weekly Update

By: Dr. Stacey Schmidt Last Updated: September 29, 2014

porter-township-schools-logoAs you may have heard last spring, Indiana pulled out of the Common Core Standards and worked to create our own Indiana College and Career Ready Standards in Language Arts and Mathematics. These standards were rolled out by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) just before the end of the school year and will be the standards assessed on spring assessments.

Our teachers worked hard this summer in Language Arts and Mathematics to unpack the resources provided by the IDOE on these standards and to revise curriculum and maps to reflect the changes made. If you would like to take a look at this standards, you can find them on the Indiana Department of Education website. Standards are used not as the curriculum, but as what drives the curriculum.
