2015 Updates

Kids in Class

It benefits our whole community when all students learn and progress each year to become knowledgeable thinkers, good citizens and valuable members of our community. Academic standards are an important part of that mission.


Your State Board of Education is coordinating a review process of the current english language arts and math standards. Our goal is to listen carefully to the people of Tennessee so we can make adjustments while maintaining the high standards that Tennessee students will need to succeed, both now and in the future.

General Information

The State Board of Education is the governing and policy making body for the Tennessee system of public elementary and secondary education. Its work touches all facets of education from accountability and evaluation to curriculum and teacher education.

State Board of Education staff members provide ongoing policy research and analysis of public education issues including instruction, student assessment, and funding. The Board works closely with the Tennessee General Assembly to secure legislative support for education. The Board also coordinates its efforts with the State Department of Education, which implements law and policies established by the General Assembly and the Board. Through its annual report on student, teacher and school performance, the Board provides the legislature and the general public with information about the status of education in Tennessee.
