Special Announcements

NEW 2022 Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics

Hundreds of educators and stakeholders participated in the review of the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics (OAS-M) in 2021. The writing and draft review teams spent a large part of their summer reviewing each standard and objective and, as needed, revising. Their hard work was then submitted to the Oklahoma State Board of Education to review and vote to approve.

During a special State School Board Meeting held March 10, 2022, the State School Board voted to approve the 2022 OAS-M, with the contingency that implementation would take place starting in the 2023-2024 school year. Following this approval, the standards were submitted to the Oklahoma State Legislature for their consideration.

With the legislative session complete, the final approved version of the OAS-M is now available. At this time, educators may begin to review the revised standards. The 2023 Oklahoma School Testing Program (OSTP) will continue to assess students' understandings of the 2016 standards. Resources will be made available by summer 2023 to support educators for the 2023-24 school year implementation of the standards.
