Oklahoma Academic Standards


Oklahoma Academic Standards serve as expectations for what students should know and be able to do by the end of the school year and are written by Oklahomans for Oklahoma. 

The subject matter standards shall be thoroughly reviewed by the State Board every six (6) years according to and in coordination with the existing subject area textbook adoption cycle (70 O.S. § 11-103.6a). The development, review, and revision process involves stakeholders throughout the state of Oklahoma and is an ongoing and critical component to ensuring Oklahoma students in every classroom receive current and relevant learning experiences that prepare them for college, career, and citizenry.
