TN Board of Education seeks public input on new math, English standards

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE  (AP) - The Tennessee State Board of Education is seeking public comment on newly revised K-12 math and English language arts standards.

The standards were developed by expert educator advisory teams throughout the summer. They set grade-specific goals that exemplify what students are expected to know and be able to do by the end of a given grade or course.

The standards will be available for feedback online through mid-November at https://apps.tn.gov/tcas/ .

Once data has been collected from the public, officials say it will be given to a recommendation committee that will review the standards and the public feedback throughout October, November and December.

The committee will then make recommendations to the board at its January meeting.

The revised standards are expected to be implemented in the 2017-18 school year.
