Next Generation Learning Standards Roadmap and Implementation Timeline

The Next Generation English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics Implementation Roadmap is a document prepared by the State Education Department to assist educators’ transition to fully implement the new Next Generation Standards. The Roadmap’s goals and activities were designed by the State Education Department in collaboration with various local school districts and stakeholders to ensure that all New York State schools would be equipped to implement the Next Generation Standards. The overall timeline for the implementation of the Next Generation ELA and Mathematics is as follows:

  • September 2017: Adoption of NYS Next Generation Learning Standards.
  • Phase I: Raise Awareness (Winter 2018-Winter/Spring 2019): Professional development on NYS Next Generation Learning Standards; two-day assessments measuring the 2011 P-12 Learning Standards.
  • Phase II: Build Capacity (Spring 2019-Summer 2020): Professional development continuing on NYS Next Generation Learning Standards; two-day assessments measuring the 2011 P-12 Learning Standards.
  • Phase III Full Implementation (September 2020 – ongoing): Full implementation of the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards.
  • Spring 2021: New grade 3-8 tests measuring the NYS Next Generation Learning Standards. The timeline regarding the full-implementation/assessment alignment at the high-school level has not yet been determined and will be forthcoming; however, full-implementation/assessment alignment will not be before the school year 2020-2021.
