CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) and State Board of Education are taking public input on Wyoming’s current math standards. The Math Standards Review Committee will consider this input as they begin the standards review process. Input can be given online through May or at regional community meetings.
The regional community meetings will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the following locations:
- May 2: Powell High School Library, 1151 E. 7th Street, Powell, WY
- May 3: Natrona #1 Central Services Facility, Jefferson East Room, 970 N. Glenn Road, Casper, WY
- May 4: Rock Springs High School, Board Room, 3550 Foothill Blvd, Rock Springs, WY
- May 9: Laramie #1 Administrative Building, Room #130, 2811 House Ave, Cheyenne, WY
Each community meeting will start with a 30-minute presentation on the standards review process, the review timeline, and answering questions before a 90-minute time slot dedicated to public comment. The public may come and go throughout or feel free to stay to hear the comments of others.
WDE personnel will present the input to the members of the Math Standards Review Committee before they meet this summer. The committee will review the 2012 Mathematics Standards and make a recommendation to the State Board of Education. Standards are reviewed at least once every nine years based on a timeline approved by the State Board.
Those interested in serving on this committee should complete the Call for Participants Survey. The survey closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 11, 2017.
