Change is coming to our classrooms!

What will change?
  • New K-12 curriculum standards in math, language arts and science

  • New graduation requirements

  • More rigorous state-wide assessments


Why?
  • To keep pace with rising knowledge and skill demands

  • To prepare high school graduates to succeed in work and college

  • To ensure high-paying jobs are available in Tennessee
