Standards Development Committee Seeks Public Input on Math/English Language Arts Standards 

Prescott — The State Board of Education’s Standards Development Committee will be holding a public input meeting on Arizona’s Mathematics and English Language Arts Standards in Prescott on Monday, October 26, 2015. 

In March 2015, Governor Ducey tasked the State Board of Education with reviewing Arizona’s Math and English Language Arts Standards in order to ensure that the standards are vetted, approved and controlled by Arizona, and that they are the best for Arizona’s students.

In April 2015, the State Board of Education established the Arizona Academic Standards Development Committee to oversee the development of Arizona Mathematics Standards and Arizona English Language Arts Standards.

“We look forward to hosting the Standards Development Committee and the public in Yavapai County on Monday, October 26th at Glassford Hill Middle School in Prescott Valley.  The State Board has created an open, inclusive, and transparent process to seek public comment. This local opportunity is designed to allow as many Arizonans as possible to provide their view of which specific Math and English Language Arts standards they like, which they would like to revise, and which they would prefer to have eliminated.  We look forward to your participation in this most important public process.” ~Tim Carter, Yavapai County School Superintendent

As part of the standards review process, county superintendents across the state will be hosting public meetings to allow for feedback to the Standards Development Committee on the current academic standards.
