Georgia citizens have an opportunity to provide critical feedback on the current K-12 Science and Social Studies standards. Would you please take time today to review the standards and provide constructive feedback to the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE)? The deadline to submit responses is September 15 at midnight EST.
Please see GaDOE media alert below:
August 12, 2015 – The Georgia Department of Education is seeking public feedback as it conducts a review of the Science and Social Studies K-12 standards. After this process is complete, the new standards will be implemented in the 2017-18 school year.
Click here to provide input on the current standards.* This is a user-friendly, brief survey for professionals, parents and families, community members, students, and others.
“Educators have already given us valuable feedback on the current standards, and we wanted to make sure the public had a chance to weigh in as well,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I’m committed to ensuring guaranteed, viable standards – standards that are appropriate and fully vetted. That can’t be done without input from all education stakeholders.”
Responses to this survey will be added to the educator responses and will be considered when Working Committees draft the revised standards.
The deadline to submit responses is September 15 at midnight EST.
*Additional suggestion for completing the survey:
The survey allows feedback for each individual grade-level and course. We recommend reviewing the standards one grade level/course at a time. The survey allows for written comments, so you might want to type any comments in a word processing program and then copy/paste into the comment box within the survey.
