     The State Board of Education’s Standards Development Committee will hold a public input meeting on Arizona’s Mathematics and English Language Arts Standards from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at the Show Low School District Auditorium, located on Old Linden Road at the entrance to Show Low High School.

In March, the State Board of Education was tasked with reviewing Arizona’s Math and English Language Arts Standards in order to ensure that the standards are vetted, approved and controlled by Arizona, and that they are the best for Arizona’s students.

In April, the State Board of Education established the Arizona Academic Standards Development Committee to oversee the development of Arizona Mathematics Standards and Arizona English Language Arts Standards.

As part of the standards review process, county school superintendents across the state will be hosting public meetings to allow for feedback to the Standards Development Committee on the current academic standards. For more information on Arizona’s K-12 Mathematics and English Language Arts Standards, go online to https://k12standards.az.gov/.

Apache County School Superintendent Barry Williams and Navajo County School Superintendent Linda Morrow invite area residents to attend Tuesday’s meeting to voice their ideas regarding the AZ English Language Arts and Math Standards.
