Standards Maps for Grades Nine Through Twelve
Standards map templates were developed so that school districts can determine the extent to which instructional materials, or a combination of instructional materials, for students in grades nine through twelve align with the content standards adopted by the State Board of Education (SBE). Publishers are invited to include completed standards maps with materials offered for sale in the four core content areas in grades nine through twelve, citing where their materials align with the content standards. The standards maps are also a tool for local educational agencies to use when evaluating instructional materials for alignment with content standards, as local school boards must certify that materials are aligned with the California content standards. The templates are located on the CDE Standards Maps for Grades Nine Through Twelve Web page.

Additional information is available on the CDE Curriculum Frameworks and Instructional Materials Web page.
