The push for higher academic standards in the state continued by Gov. Chris Christie. Governor Chris Christie and Acting Education Commissioner Chris Cerf outlined the Administration’s ongoing action to implement high academic standards in New Jersey schools on Tuesday.
According to the Governor’s press released, this year, districts will implement the new standards in K-2 math. In 2012-13, districts will implement the new standards in K-12 ELA and 3-5 and 9-12 math. In 2013-14, districts will implement 6-8 math. As implementation moves forward, the Department of Education will continue with training sessions for districts, developing webinars and other web resources to provide resources and support for the development of curricula in the remaining grades, and serving as a resource to ensure that districts are on track at every step of the process.
