Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! A new school year means updates are available in the area of mathematics. Below are a few that are noteworthy.
**NEW** 2023 Mathematics Standards of Learning
The 2023 Mathematics Standards of Learning were approved by the Virginia Board of Education on August 31, 2023 and will be fully implemented during the 2024-2025 school year.
In preparation for full implementation of the 2023 standards, school divisions have three transition options for the 2023-2024 school year:
Full Crosswalk Year
|Instruction in both the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning and the 2023 Mathematics Standards of Learning|
Partial Crosswalk Year
|Instruction in the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning with choices for prioritization of key content from the 2023 Mathematics Standards of Learning|
2016 Standard Focus
|Instruction focused solely on the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning|
Note: The Mathematics Standards of Learning tests during the 2023-2024 school year will assess the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning.
More information on options for transition can be found in this slide deck from the VDOE’s September 21,2023 Transitioning to the 2023 Mathematics Standards of Learning webinar.

Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST)
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) are the highest honors bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics teaching. The Awards were established by Congress in 1983. The President may recognize a total of 110 exemplary teachers each year.
This year’s award’s will honor science, technology, engineering, or mathematics teachers working in grades K-6.
For more information and to nominate a teacher, visit the PAEMST website. Nominations close on January 8, 2024 and applications must be completed by February 6, 2024.
