Drafting Oklahoma Standards

Welcome to the OSDE information page for standards.  This page will connect you with timelines, draft standards, opportunities for feedback, and all other information about the process of developing new state standards in mathematics and English language arts.

Under House Bill 3399, which was signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin in June 2014, Oklahoma must have the new standards ready in 2016.

The resulting standards will ensure students are prepared for higher education and the workforce, reflecting Oklahoma values and principles.  These standards are to be created by Oklahomans for Oklahomans.
