The Office of Standards is designed to promote the implementation of effective standards-based curriculum and evidence-based instructional practices by providing technical assistance, facilitating professional learning experiences and analyzing relevant research in English language arts, health and physical education, mathematics, science, social studies, visual and performing arts and world languages. Content area specialists build relationships and foster partnerships with state and national organizations, government agencies and higher education to identify challenges and create resources in support of a well-rounded education for all students. Members of the office consider relevant educational policies and regulations and provide guidance to districts and stakeholders as they relate to supporting teachers in their work to prepare students for life beyond high school in an interconnected, global world.
