The State Board of Education has approved some revisions to Ohio’s Learning Standards for English Language Arts proposed by the Ohio Department of Education based on recommendations of educators statewide. Know that the revisions for ELA 6-12 were minimal and likely encompass teaching already happening in your classrooms. For example, many of the changes added having a thesis in writings and clarifying perspective from point of view. Educators should begin transitioning to the revised standards during the 2017-18 school year, with full implementation during the 2018-19 school year. The AIR tests will be aligned to the 2010 standards this year. They will be aligned to the 2017 standards in the 2018-19 school year. The CCS Clear Learning Targets will be updated to reflect the changes. The revised standards with guiding docs have been added to this page.
