Learning Standards Update

As part of its ongoing efforts to raise awareness for stakeholders of Southwestern Central Schools, the district is sharing information about New York State’s Implementation Roadmap for the Next Generation Learning Standards.

Over the next 3 years, the Next Generation Learning Standards – which describe what students are expected to know and be able to do at various grade levels in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics – will be rolled out strategically. The standards will be in full use in classrooms in 2020, and students will be assessed on them in 2021.

For further reading, the Implementation Roadmap is available on the State Education Department’s website.
