The Board of Regents adopted the newly revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards on September 11, 2017. The name of these new standards are called New York State Next Generation Learning Standards. The new standards have been the result of over two years of collaborative work to ensure New York State has the best learning standards for our students. Over 130 educators and parents worked together to make recommendations and revise the standards, resulting in a new set of revised English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards.
The 2022-2023 school year will be the first year that grades 3-8 will be assessed on the Next Generation Standards. Oswego City Schools are working with teachers, administrators, and district personnel to identify priority standards and deliver a guaranteed and viable curriculum to all students.
