The New York State Board of Regents adopted the newly revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards in 2017. The Next Generation Learning Standards are the educational goals for all of New York State’s students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 in English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics.
Unadilla educators and parents worked together to make recommendations and revise the standards to ensure they are appropriate for students’ grade levels and reflect what students should know and be able to do in math and ELA.
Full implementation of the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards is scheduled to begin during the 2020-2021 school year for students in Pre-K through grade 8.
The New York State Education Department has provided an implementation timeline and resources for parents.
