The Montana Common Core Standards for Math and ELA establish high expectations for student learning and achievement that will enable all students to be competitive on a district, state, national and global scale.
common core is right for montana
Common Core is Right for Montana
  • Establish high expectations for student learning and achievement in Math and English Language Arts
  • Set literacy goals for History/Social Studies, Science and Technical subjects
  • Provide clear, nationally consistent guidelines
  • Maintain Montana's values and priorities, including Indian Education for All

Montana’s Legal, Ethical, Instructional Responsibility
  • Process for inclusion of Indian Education standards January– May 2011 :
    • K-20 content and IEFA experts from across the state
    • Purposeful placement of IEFA language embedded in existing standards for most effective inclusion
    • Reviewed by Montana educators
