The 2005 Oklahoma Legislature passed SB 982, also known as the
ACE College Preparatory/Work Ready Curriculum, mandating a default
college preparatory/work ready curriculum beginning with students
graduating from high school in 2010. The default curriculum is
aligned with the 2010 Oklahoma's
Promise curriculum, and the legislation requires that all
courses within the curriculum be approved for college admission.
The subject names below are linked to
more detailed course requirements.
