CHEYENNE – The Wyoming State Board of Education has requested public input on the proposed 2018 Wyoming Math Standards, Science Extended Standards, and additions to the 2014 Social Studies Standards. The Wyoming Department of Education will collect the public input through an online survey and regional meetings.
The regional meeting in Sweetwater County will take place on March 29th at the Central Administration Building in Green River, 351 Monroe Avenue.
The changes in each content area were recommended by review committees comprised of educators, content area specialists, and citizens. The proposed standards are available for review on the WDE website.
Input can be given through an online survey, which is available now through April 8, 2018, or at five regional meetings with varying times for each content area. At each meeting, WDE staff will give a presentation on the proposed standards revisions, be available to answer questions, and collect public input.
In addition, a public input meeting focused on the Social Studies Standards will take place on March 26 from 1-3 p.m. at the St. Stephens High School gymnasium, 128 Mission Road, St. Stephens, WY.
Comments collected through the online survey and regional meetings will be shared with the SBE at their meeting in April. If the SBE moves to adopt the revised standards, an additional public comment period will follow before any new standards will be adopted.
More information on the standards review process is available on the WDE website.
