Nebraska's College and Career Ready Standards for Mathematics

Nebraska Revised Statute 79.760.01 requires the Nebraska State Board of Education to adopt measurable academic content standards in the subject areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. The statute requires the State Board to review and update the standards every seven years. Pursuant to 79.760.01, and under the leadership of the Nebraska Department of Education, the process to review and revise the 2015 Nebraska’s College and Career Standards for Mathematics will began in Fall 2021. The current mathematics standards were approved by the State Board of Education in September 2022.

New Walk to Unlock Nebraska Program — Spring Pilot: Launch Spring 2023
Creativity is a necessity when working with students and Walk to Unlock Nebraska allows the opportunity to engage in a robust physical activity program with a cross-curricular educational component. The program features an interactive map of Nebraska that allows users to track their locally achieved physical activity miles to make progress on virtual trails across the state.  Trails highlight and engage learning about agriculture, historical, and science-based content along one of four Nebraska trails that will be built over the two-year project.  As students accumulate physical activity miles in one’s school, after-school program or home and “travel” across the virtual trails, they will encounter opportunities to learn more about the state through lessons appropriate for grades K-8th grade, view virtual field trips, learn about historical landmarks, and even adopt a cow!
