North Dakota Implementation Schedule 

http://www.dpi.state.nd.us/standard/schedule.pdf

The state’s 2005 English Language Arts and Mathematics content standards will remain effective until July 1, 2013, after which these approved 2011 standards will become operationally effective for the purposes of the state’s accountability system. After July 1, 2013, all public school districts are expected to provide instruction based on these new content standards. The state’s academic assessments aligned to the 2005 content standards will continue to be administered through the Fall 2013 test administration, since these assessments are based on the previous year’s content instruction. Beginning with the 2014-15 academic year, the state will begin the administration of a new generation of state assessments based on these 2011 content standards.
