Michigan Academic Standards

The State academic standards linked here serve to outline learning expectations for Michigan’s students and are intended to guide local curriculum development. They are used as a framework by schools for curriculum development with the curriculum itself prescribing instructional resources, methods, progressions, and additional knowledge valued by the local community. Furthermore, these standards provide a platform for State assessments, which are used to measure how well schools are providing opportunities for all students to learn the content outlined by the standards.
