This document names the instructional content priorities in mathematics (K–8) and ELA/literacy (K–12) for the 2020–21 academic year. It provides guidance for the field about the content priorities by leveraging the structure and emphases of college- and career-ready mathematics and ELA/literacy standards. It is intended to help publishers, other designers of instructional materials, and instructional leaders find new efficiencies in the curriculum that are critical for the unique challenges that have resulted from school closures and anticipated disruptions in the year ahead, keeping at the forefront principles of equitable instruction.

The 2020-21 Priority Instructional Content is complementary to the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS) framework "Addressing Unfinished Learning After COVID-19 School Closures."
