Revised Mathematics Standards for K-8 have been approved by the State Board of Education. The new standards will be implemented for the 2018-2019 school year. The revisions received several rounds of feedback from teachers, college and university professors, parents, and the public. Based on the feedback received, the new standards were edited to improve clarity, to strengthen connection to previous leaning, and to better align standards at each grade level before the board approved it. The new standards describe what students should know and be able to do in mathematics at each elementary and middle school grade level.
Before the new standards begin, school principals, teachers, and local school district central office staff who supervise mathematics activities will be provided with information sessions with resources of collaborative pacing guides and instructional guidance documents from the Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) mathematics staff. In addition, NCDPI will create new student assessments that are aligned with the standards.
