Utah State Standards and Common Core

Utah is not a member of either of the federally funded testing consortia; however, Utah has been bold in its implementation of the Common Core, providing teachers with recommended curricula and developing its own Common Core–aligned assessments.

State Subject Requirements

None. Parents were previously required to provide instruction in the same subjects required to be taught in the state’s public schools, but this requirement was repealed back in 2014.
