Nevada Academic Content Standards serve as expectations for what students should know and be able to do by the end of each school year. The standards serve as a model for effective teaching and learning by informing educators what the foundational outcomes of a course of study should be. Setting high standards ensures all students will be college and career ready upon graduation from high school.
Why Standards are Important
Standards are essential because: standards set clear and measurable goals to inform
instruction and measure achievement. All children must have access to high quality
and rigorous instructional materials and resources. Clear statements about what students
must know and be able to do are essential in making sure our schools offer opportunities to get knowledge and skills necessary for success beyond the classroom.
Nevada Academic Content Standards
The development, review, and revision process involves stakeholders throughout Nevada
and is an ongoing and critical component to ensuring Nevada students in every classroom
receive current and relevant learning experiences.
