Review Schedule: Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards
Academic standards operate in a cycle of review and revision. The revision of academic standards or this cycle, allows MPS the opportunity to evaluate current curriculum and determine if a new curriculum adoption process is needed.
Minnesota’s K-12 academic standards are reviewed in one content area per year, following the schedule specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.021, Subdivision 4.
For the latest Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards Review Schedule for core subjects see the table below or visit the Minnesota Department of Education's website for the latest:
