Thursday’s State Board of Education work session is where we can expect to hear the results of the public’s review of the Math and English language arts standards last fall, according to the agenda published for the work session.
The work session starts at 8:30 a.m. and will be broadcast in video live by the Alabama State Department of Education.
Follow the live-blog from the meeting at this link. The live-blog contains the agenda and a bit of background on the review.The ALSDE published this on their site at the end of the public review of the Math and English language arts standards:
During the course of the review, standards found in the Alabama Math and English language arts Course of Study were reviewed more than 1400 times. Approximately 1170 standards, equaling 82 percent, were reviewed with users clicking “Agree” on a chosen standard(s). Approximately 250 standards, equaling 18 percent, were reviewed, with users clicking “Disagree” with the ability to comment on a chosen standard(s).
All feedback generated will now go to the state mathematics and English language arts Course of Study (COS) committees. The only comments that will be considered for action will be those of academic substance that are tied to a specific standard. The COS committees may then provide recommendations to the Alabama State Board of Education.
Good to know that 1400 standards were looked at. Hope we receive more of the breakdown to show how many of us participated in the review.
Cause if we don’t participate, they might stop asking us to do so.
