The Wyoming Department of Education would like to remind residents that the public comment period for revisions and documents for Wyoming Content and Performance Standards is open until Sept. 11.

Per state statute the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards are reviewed every five (5) years, and revisions are approved by the State Board of Education.

At its meeting on April 11, 2014, the State Board of Education approved for public comment new standards in the content areas of social studies, physical education, and career and vocational education.

On July 1, 2014, the State Board of Education also approved for public comment additional supporting documents for the July 2012 standards in English language arts and mathematics, adding performance level descriptors as well as standards extensions for students with severe cognitive disabilities.

As required by statute, the WDE is now seeking public comment on the proposed changes/additions to the content standards. Public comment on the proposed changes will remain open until Sept. 11, 2014.

In addition to theonline format, the WDE will be holding public hearings to receive comments. Additionally, a teleconference public hearing will be held via the Wyoming Equality Network (WEN). All public comments will be recorded verbatim, including the submitter’s name and city of residence. If comments are mailed in, please specify which rule change the comment is concerning.
