Extended Content Standards K-12
The North Carolina Standard Course of Study (NCSCOS) defines the appropriate content standards for each grade or proficiency level and each high school course to provide a uniform set of learning standards for every public school in North Carolina. These standards define what students are expected to know and be able to do by the end of each school year or course.
The NC State Board of Education policy, SCOS-012, requires that each content area’s standards be reviewed every five-to-seven years to ensure the NCSCOS consists of clear, relevant standards and objectives.
Extended Content Standards for English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies are posted by content area.
