Standards and Subject Areas

Oregon has standards and resources for each grade in the following subject areas:

The standards in many subject areas were designed by the State of Oregon. Different standards may be adopted in these content areas in the future. In fact, change in standards is not uncommon. As states seek continuous improvement in student achievement, students are required to reach new levels of learning. Raising the bar for our students means implementing new state standards.

Standards are organized so that they build upon each other at each advancing grade. For example, standards taught in sixth grade math establish skills needed to learn more complex skills in seventh grade math, and so on.

For a sample of content standards, download a Parents’ Guide to Graduation handout.
