A new school year in Indiana means that teachers and students are facing a new set of academic standards.
Indiana adopted new standards in April after becoming the first state in the nation to pull out of Common Core.
The state Department of Education held 19 summer training sessions on the standards and produced teacher resource guides to help them adjust to the change.
There will also be a new statewide assessment test that will be administered in the spring, but right now there aren’t even any examples of the test.
The good news is that the new standards aren’t all that different from Common Core.
