Essential Standards

North Carolina Essential Standards

for Information and Technology

The North Carolina Board of Education and Department of Public Instruction have adopted Essential Standards for Information and Technology.  Beginning with the 2011-2012 school year our students in kindergarten through fifth grade focused their learning in five major areas: 
- sources of information
- informational text
- technology as a tool
- research process and
- safety/ethical issues.
