In line with the recently updated standards as of Spring 2023, we are excited to present the compilation of recommended standards for Indiana educators. The Indiana Department of Education did a wonderful job consolidating grade-specific standards into easily accessible PDF documents.
If you haven't had the chance to explore the files yet, the accompanying memo provides links to folders that house the following subjects:
To assist educators in grasping the changes in standards, we are currently in the process of creating Google Sheets that highlight which standards are now considered Essential, which ones remain unchanged, and which have been reduced. Our goal is to compile these standards, grade by grade, so that you can utilize this valuable information during your vertical conversations. Becky McPherson, Assistant Superintendent at Greencastle Schools, in Greencastle, Indiana, has compiled the 2023 Reduced Indiana Academic Standards, Math, 6-12 document. You can access the K-5 Math document as well.
The IDOE documents excel at clearly indicating which standards are Essential; these are shaded in gray and feature an "(E)" at the end of the sentence. On the 2023 Reduced Indiana Academic Standards, Math, 6-12 document, we have placed the Essential standards at the top to create ease of reference. However, we fully recognize that the standards in non-numerical order throughout the document, may be tough and bothersome for some of us!
Here is the link to access the 2023 Reduced Indiana Academic Standards, ELA, K-5 post (document link included) as well as the 2023 Reduced Indiana Academic Standards, ELA, 6-12.
Lastly, thank you again to Becky McPherson for taking the time to create the math documents and to then share them readily with teachers and leaders across the state!
