Standards Review

In accordance with Act 200, the State Board of Education, in consultation with the EOC, is directed to conduct a cyclical review of the SC ELA and mathematics academic standards to ensure the standards are maintaining high expectations for teaching and learning.

Per Act 200, the revised standards, once approved by the EOC and the SC State Board of Education, will become the standards in school year 2015-16.

Review of Current Standards

To accomplish the task of reviewing the current standards, the EOC conducted an online survey that was live from July to September 2014. The report on the findings can be found here.
