The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction (NDDPI) is dedicated to gathering local, regional, and national resources for anyone in the education field. This resource center is designed to be a one-stop-shop to help school, educators, students, parents, and caregivers by providing access to educational supports and resources.

The linked resources on this page were carefully chosen for their alignment to North Dakota K-12 Education Content Standards. Particular attention has been given to identifying best practices and guidance in supporting ALL students and providing suggestions for educator professional learning. Local public school districts decide which curriculum, materials, and resources are used within their district; therefore, these resources may or may not be aligned to a student's specific coursework. Please be sure to cross-check your students' and school's specific materials to ensure appropriate use.
