Academic standards provide a common set of expectations for what students will know and be able to do at the end of a grade.

After receiving feedback and insight from educators in Tennessee and reviewing national exemplars in social studies education and two sets of draft standards, the State Board of Education approved on second read the new social studies standards on July 26, 2013. These standards were implemented in the 2014-15 school year. Teachers with a history 7-12 endorsement or a geography 7-12 endorsement are qualified to teach both the U.S. history and geography course and world history and geography course.

The State Board of Education (SBE) has the authority to adopt academic standards for each subject area in grades K-12.
