Curriculum standards provide teachers, parents and students with a clear understanding of what each student is expected to learn. Standards are created to be relevant to the knowledge and skills children need to be successful.
North City School, Westside School and Athens City Middle School follow the curriculum standards set forth by the Tennessee Department of Education. Additional information about the standards by subject area can be found by clicking the links below.
The State Board of Education launched a review website https://apps.tn.gov/tcas/ to collect public feedback on Tennessee’s K-12 Math, ELA, and Science standards. The website provides an opportunity for every Tennessean to participate in the first phase of a highly transparent and comprehensive standards review process. We encourage educators, parents, and other stakeholders to review the standards and provide feedback.
Data collected from this website will be given to a team of Tennessee educators to review; this data will inform the revisions of the standards. The revised standards and aligned assessments will be implemented in the 2018-19 school year.
