The Illinois Learning Standards establish expectations for what all students should know and be able to do in each subject at each grade. The standards emphasize depth over breadth, building upon key concepts as students advance. The standards promote student-driven learning and the application of knowledge to real world situations to help students develop deep conceptual understanding. Intentionally rigorous, the Illinois Learning Standards prepare students for the challenges of college and career.

ORIENTATION​

 Priority Standards

The Illinois Priority Learning Standards document is not intended to serve as a mandate from the state or a replacement of the full set of learning standards. The purpose of the Illinois Priority Learning Standards is to provide a starting point for discussions on prioritization of learning standards at the local district level. This prioritization can help to ensure learners are being met where they are at and moved along the continuum of learning toward grade level proficiency and beyond.
