Clients are scrambling to get up to speed on the nearly 25% reduction of standards recently approved by the Board of Education in Indiana. Based on a study by the Office of Student Pathways, the goal was to ‘define essential postsecondary skills necessary to promote future success in employment, enrollment, or enlistment leading to service.’ In doing so, they prioritized standards for English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. The work, outlined by the Indiana Department of Education, was part of a mandatory review of standards conducted once every six years. A implementation guideline for the changes was issued in May, 2023.
Our team of Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) have been working through these changes, organizing the new standards, and are ready to assist in updating the alignments required to stay in compliance. For more information on the Indiana DOE changes, please contact Gina Faulk, General Manager of EdGate.
