Accountability and Curriculum Reform Effort (ACRE)

North Carolina's Accountability and Curriculum Reform Effort - also known as ACRE - is our state's comprehensive initiative to redefine the Standard Course of Study for K-12 students, the student assessment program and the school accountability model. In undertaking this ambitious work, North Carolina education leaders are the first in the nation to address learning standards, student assessments and school accountability simultaneously.

In stages over five years (2008-2013) the ACRE initiative will

  • identify the most critical knowledge and skills that students need to learn - filtering the "must have" elements of the curriculum from the "nice to have" elements;
  • create new student tests for grades 3-8 and high school courses that use more open-ended questions, more technology and more real-world applications of what students learn; and
  • provide a new model for measuring school success that gives parents and educators more relevant information about how well schools are preparing students for college, work and adulthood.

You can access the history of ACRE, its development and implementation, timelines and documents, and resources guiding these efforts through this link.

Hyde County Schools
Resource Center for Understanding Common Core and
Essential Standards Curriculum

Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, Common Core Standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts will be taught and assessed in North Carolina public schools. All teachers in our school division are scheduled to receive various training sessions throughout the 2011-2012 school year to prepare for this change.  Implementation of the Common Core Standards in the state’s public schools is designed to directly address the relevance and rigor of what is being taught in classrooms.  North Carolina is one of 45 states to adopt this set of standards.

The standards are designed to:

·       be aligned with college and work expectations;

·       be clear, understandable and consistent;

·       include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills;

·       build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;

·       be informed by other top-performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in a global economy and society; and

·       be evidence and research-based.

When paired with Gov. Bev Perdue’s “Ready, Set, Go” initiative, they are designed to define the knowledge and skills students should have throughout their K-12 education careers to help them graduate from high school fully prepared for college and careers.
