Update on Standards Review - Public Law 286

posted Jan 31, 2014, 12:55 PM by webmaster district   [ updated Feb 19, 2014, 9:07 AM ]

Public Law 286 was passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2013, which creates Indiana Code 20-19-2-14.5 concerning the State Board of Education's responsibility to review Indiana's Academic Standards. This charge specifically mandates the State Board to develop college and career readiness standards compliant with state and federal requirements before July 1, 2014 and to hold public hearings on the proposed standards prior to adoption. Therefore, we would like to invite the public to attend a hearing in person if possible. The dates and locations are below. 

Online public review will be live Thursday, February 20th and remain open until March 12th. Please go to the Indiana Department of Education at www.doe.in.gov to provide your commentary on the draft set of English/Language Arts and Mathematics standards.
