Mathematics Framework Revision Timeline

Timeline for the Revision of the Mathematics Framework for California Public Schools, K–12. Approved by the State Board of Education on May 8, 2019; revised on September 11, 2019, May 7, 2020, July 14, 2021, November 3, 2021, and July 13, 2022.

This timeline will be updated if or when the SBE changes the schedule.

Updating state guidance for teachers on best practices for aligning instruction to California’s math standards remains a priority. However, rushing the development of the math curriculum framework runs counter to California’s commitment to a transparent process that follows a flexible schedule established at the discretion of the State Board of Education. The adaptable nature of the schedule allows for broad public participation and careful consideration of all potential impacts.
