For BIE students, the implementation of college and career-ready standards in multiple content areas sets a foundation for even greater student success and growth. These standards establish grade-by-grade learning expectations for students in grades K-12.  Standards are not a curriculum; they are learning objectives for students and curriculum are tools/resources used to teach those objectives. 

The BIE College and Career Ready Standards establish clear, consistent, and high learning goals and are more focused on preparing students for success in college and career. The continuity of standards presents an extraordinary opportunity for academic development.

College and career-ready standards are designed to be relevant to the real world, allow students to master more critical thinking and unique problem-solving skills, and reflect the knowledge, skills, and social foundations that our students need for success in both college and work.
