New Curriculum Standards In Place In Wood Co.< < Back to
New changes are being made to school curriculum throughout the country, and West Virginia is already adapting many of those changes.
The U.S. Constitution gives every state total control over education in that state.
Tammy McKnight, Curriculum Coordinator for Wood County Schools, says the district currently has 50 different sets of standards for learning and 50 different expectations about what is acceptable.
The goal is to adapt to changes for new curriculum.
McKnight says to be able to judge all students equally, the district created the Common Core Standards from the best standards in all 50 states.
Wood County educators believe the new standards are already providing a better way of learning for grades K-12 in almost every state including West Virginia.
