Haslam introduces academic standards review website

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gov. Bill Haslam has unveiled a website where Tennesseans can review and comment on the state's current K-12 academic standards.

The standards set grade-specific goals that define what students are expected to know and be able to do by the end of a given grade or course.

Last month, Haslam laid out a process for a public review of the standards in English and math following an education summit that he co-hosted with the speakers of the House and Senate.

Academic standards are typically reviewed in Tennessee every six years. The current standards are now in their fourth year.

However, with discussion in Tennessee and across the country about Common Core state standards, Haslam said it's time to take a fresh look.

The website is: https://apps.tn.gov/tcas/ .
