    Council to Establish Academic Standards


    The Nevada Council to Establish Academic Standards for Public Schools was created to establish rigorous, measurable standards in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, computer and technology education, health and physical education, and the arts, to improve the academic achievement of Nevada’s students. Academic content standards outline the core concepts and information that must be included in the curriculum and teaching of a given subject and within a given grade.
