This web site, launched in August 1995 by Putnam Valley School District in upstate New York, is now maintained by nearby Wappingers Central School District. Given the increased emphasis on standards-based education in the newly reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the site is a timely resource for information about each stateÕs standards, frameworks, benchmarks, assessments, and the pros and cons of all of them. The site’s operators have established this web page as a single, one-source repository for as much information about educational standards and curriculum frameworks as can be found on the web. Users can search for information on standards in all 50 states or by subject area, ranging from art and music, to science, to library media and technology, to social studies and language arts.
