In June 2010, the State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics.  The State Board also adopted more rigorous versions of Ohio’s academic content standards in science and social studies.

The Benjamin Logan teaching staff is transitioning to all four sets of standards in an effort to strengthen teaching and learning in all classrooms by 2014-2015.  By implementing the standards now, we are preparing our students for corresponding assessments that begin in 2014-2015.

Ohio’s Next Generation Assessments will measure whether students are meeting expectations in the new learning standards to be ready for college and careers in the 21st century. As we prepare our students for the new computer-based, state assessments in 2014-2015, it will require students to demonstrate knowledge through the skills of critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration.
