Tell Them What You Really Think! 

 

Now is your chance to weigh in on the upcoming review of Tennessee's State Standards. Governor Haslam announced on October 22, 2014 that there will be a public process for reviewing the state's K-12 english language arts and math standards.

 

Go to https://apps.tn.gov/tcas/ to complete the standards review and commentary process. Detailed instructions are displayed after you click Begin. Once you verify that you have read the instructions you will be asked to enter some basic identification information and your role as an educator or member of the community.

 

You may choose to review and comment on as many subjects, grade levels and/or strands as you want. Each standard is displayed along with the options to recommend keeping it, reviewing it, or removing it.

 

The data will be collected by the Southern Regional Education Board before being passed on to the Standards Review & Development Committees and Advisory Teams. There are 2 Review and Development Committees, one for ELA and one for Math. Each committee will be advised by 3 Advisory Teams (K-5, 6-8 and 9-12). See this press release for more information on the structure and members of the teams and committees.

 

It is especially important for professional educators to make their voices heard on this issue. You are the most experienced members of the community when it comes to teaching standards. Every day you are interacting with students and evaluating how and what they should be learning. Now is the time to pass on this valuable insight and be a part of determining the future of our state's standards for your students' education.
