NYS Releases Drafts of New Standards
Last week, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) released new draft New York State P-12 English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards for public comment. The new draft standards are the result of a year-long effort to gather feedback from teachers and parents. Two committees comprised of more than 100 teachers and parents reviewed every standard and recommended changing 60 percent of the ELA and 55 percent of the mathematics standards.
These draft standards are now available for comment by the public through November 4.
To comment, please download the grade level on which you would like to comment and then complete the survey questions.
