Districts are required to put state standards into place so all students have access to high-quality content and instruction. Districts must develop local standards for subjects that do not have state standards. Resources are provided to help districts in this effort.
State standards are revised on a schedule approved by the Minnesota Legislature. You can follow the revision process for each subject area on this page. Please subscribe to this page to receive e-mail notices when new information is added.Standards Revision: Social Studies
