Common Core Standards Revisions
In 2013 Gov. Nathan Deal signed an Executive Order asking the State Board of Education (SBOE) to review the Common Core English Language Arts and Mathematics standards. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has completed the revision process of the standards, and they are now asking for public comment on the revisions.

The survey for the revised standards will be posted for 60 days of public review and comment from November 12, 2014, through January 10, 2015. The draft revised standards and public feedback will be presented to the Georgia State Board of Education on January 15, 2015, for approval.
