INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (21Alive) -- The Department of Education has released the final draft of the new academic standards for Indiana schools.

The new standards for Math and English/Language Arts will be replacing the national Common Core standards that Indiana dropped earlier this year.

According to WTHR, the new standards took more than 150 educators and thousands of hours to determine what should comprise the new standards. The authors say that the new standards exceed the common core standards in areas like math, where they will now have standards for trigonometry and calculus.
