Curriculum K-12

Common Core State Standards - Wisconsin adopted the Common Core State Standards as Wisconsin's mathematics and English language arts standards in 2010. Teachers, content experts, parents, and community leaders all weighed in to help create the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Literacy in All Subjects, and these standards have been adopted by over 45 states.

Wisconsin is also participating in a multi-state project to develop new common standards for science. Led by the National Research Council, a framework was developed to guide the writing of science standards. Achieve, Inc., is leading the development of Next Generation Science Standards based on this framework. Expect a final draft version in Spring of 2013.
