Education in Ohio is changing. This change will help your child succeed in school. It also will better prepare your child for success in college or the work force upon high school graduation.
The basis of this change is new academic content standards, which define what your child should know and be able to do at every grade level. There are new standards in English language arts (reading and writing), mathematics, science and social studies.
These new standards let teachers know what they are expected to teach and students know what they are expected to learn. Standards also help educators identify and measure what students know and can do.
Part of this system will include achievement tests to determine how well your child is making progress toward these new standards.
