The North Ridgeville City Schools are working hard to ensure each student is achieving and performing deep understanding in relation to State Standards.

Standards-based education is a process for planning, delivering, monitoring, and improving academic programs in which clearly defined academic content standards provide the basis for content in instruction and assessment.

Professional development is an important component to ensure that teachers are following the state standards and utilizing the latest in technology and curriculum to offer students the most challenging work in class.

A large component of Curriculum and Instruction now also relates to state mandated assessments and accountability. The state requires numerous achievement tests covering the core subject areas. The District has to follow tight restrictions on the administrations of tests, the collection of completed tests, and the final analysis on the results.

State Standards are clearly defined statements of what all students are expected to know and be able to do. CLICK HERE to read the Ohio State Standards.
