For Ohio’s Dublin City School District, the new year brings with it changes to the education that is offered to students, ThisWeekNews reported. This is due in part to the fact that the state adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) on June 18, 2010.

The Common Core will slowly be phased in at schools throughout the District beginning with kindergarten and first grade, according to the news source. As the CCSS is implemented, both teachers and students will be introduced to a revised curriculum that will highlight new standards for English and mathematics.

For instance, kindergarteners and first-graders will be introduced to mathematical topics that will build a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and other areas by the time they reach the fifth grade, according to the CCSS’ website.

In addition, District officials are looking beyond the academic year and planning ahead, the news outlet reported.

"Every single department is doing a three-year strategic plan," Superintendent David Axner said. "Every single department in the district will have a three-year plan formalized to put us in good shape going forward."
