North Dakota Content Standards serve as a model to develop goals for teaching and learning and as expectations for what students should know and be able to do for each grade span. Each school district may set more rigorous standards; however, no district shall use any state content standards less rigorous than those set forth in the North Dakota Century Code 15.1-21.
Local school districts determine the curriculum (how standards are taught) they will adopt to meet the standards.
To access a machine-readable version of the official North Dakota Content Standards, please visit the North Dakota CASE Server. The CASE version of the standards can be uploaded to student information systems, curriculum mapping programs, and a variety of other uses.
To access the priority standards and proficiency scales developed by the North Dakota Regional Education Association, please visit NDREA.org.
The North Dakota Department of Career and Technical Education (NDCTE) also has content standards to assist in preparing students for entry into industry sectors for post-secondary education. The NDCTE develops these standards to ensure each program area offers courses that allow students to acquire essential knowledge and skills.

ELA Content Standards Development Committee Minutes
The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) is seeking feedback on draft two of the North Dakota Library Media Content Standards, which are currently up for review and revision.
Academic subject matter standards are concise, written descriptions outlining the knowledge and skills students are expected to know and do at a specific stage of their education. The library standards provide a description of what students have learned upon completion of a grade level. The academic standards do not describe particular teaching practices, curricula, or assessment methods.
The North Dakota Library Media Content Standards were last revised in 2012. The NDDPI asks that all interested stakeholders provide feedback on draft 2 of the Library Media Content Standards on the survey linked below:
All feedback received during the public comment period will be reviewed by the NDDPI and the standards development committee charged with revising the standards. The public comment period ends July 21, 2022, at 5:00 PM CT.
Library Standards Development Committee
The standards development committee will review the 2012 approved library content standards and draft revisions to improve the structure and content of these standards. The revised standards will be submitted to the state superintendent for final approval. Once approved, the new library standards will be adopted to guide local curriculum development.
