WDE: Common Core Standards Adoption Timeline Available

In response to inquiries regarding the process followed in the adoption of the current Wyoming math and language arts content standards, the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) has produced a timeline of important dates and information regarding their implementation.

WDE Standards and Accountability Division Administrator Julie Magee said the timeline starts in 2009 and outlines the original memorandum of agreement signed by then-Governor Dave Freudenthal and Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Jim McBride. The piece points to the fact that participation in the process by the state of Wyoming was voluntary and the state could leave the process at any time.

The timeline also offers dates and links to the opportunities provided by the WDE for public comment on the Common Core State Standards, the Wyoming content standards review process, as well as the seven public hearings on the process held around Wyoming.

The document ends with the State Board of Education’s vote on adopting the revised standards in language arts and math and Governor Matt Mead’s signing of the revised standards, putting them into effect on July 11, 2012.
