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.

In collaboration with the North Dakota State Library, the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction is seeking qualified individuals who will serve as content specialists from schools and school districts K-12 and higher education institutions to review and revise the state’s current K-12 Library and Technology academic standards.
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.
The content standards development process will begin in February 2022 and include approximately four separate meetings, concluding by Fall 2022.
Information regarding the standards development activities may be found on the NDDPI website. Applications need to be submitted by January 12, 2022. If you have questions regarding standards development, contact Davonne Eldredge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
