North Carolina Timeline:
During the field test year (2011-12), the instruction will be on the current SCS which is aligned with the operational tests students will take that year for AYP and ABCs. The first year (2012-13) of instruction for the new standards is the first year of the administration of the new assessments. This eliminates the requirement for teachers to deliver instruction on two sets of content standards in one year.
New standards change teaching methods in public schools
