ncpsThis fall the NC Department of Public Instruction begins the standards review process for the English language arts and mathematics standards.  NCDPI will be following the established State Board policy (GCS-F-012) that calls for a standards review of content standards every five years.
As the NCDPI standards review process progresses,  information gathered from stakeholders will inform the work of the NCDPI Standards Review Committee.  To gather input, NCDPI is administering two surveys this fall—one in October for educators and one in November for the broader community.
The educators’ survey is now live for teachers and other educators to complete: The survey will be available until Friday, Nov. 21, at 5 p.m.
The link will also be posted on the NCDPI website.
