Tell us your thoughts about proposed revisions to learning standards

6/20/2017

Based on feedback from hundreds of Ohio teachers and parents, improvements are pending to Ohio’s Learning Standards in science, social studies and financial literacy. The Department asks you to share your thoughts about proposed changes through a survey, now open through July 18.
 
A review of the standards began in November, when the Department asked teachers, parents and community members for suggestions. Based on this input, advisory committees representing education organizations selected some standards for revision. Educator working groups then proposed the changes we present in the survey. Those taking the survey will see the rationale for the suggested revisions, which primarily clarify text or change the grade levels at which students learn subject-related skills and knowledge. The survey also asks for feedback on newly proposed high school anatomy and physiology standards, which teachers asked for in the fall.
 
This survey is part of an effort to fine-tune all of Ohio’s Learning Standards based on teachers’ experience with them during the past few years. Learn more here.
