  9. Standards Revision Not later than June 30, 2010…the state board of education shall adopt statewide academic standards with emphasis on coherence, focus, and rigor for each of grades kindergarten through twelve in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. ORC §3301.079(A)(1)

  10. Standards Must Reflect: • College and career readiness • Content and skills • Coherence, focus, rigor • Aligned model curriculum

  11. College and Career Ready …allow each student to be prepared for postsecondary instruction and the workplace for success in the twenty-first century… ORC §3301.079(A)
