Call for Participants and Community Input on Standards for Health, Physical Education, Fine & Performing Arts, and Mathematics Extended Standards

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) seeks Wyoming residents who are interested in serving on the following standards review committees: Health/Physical Education (Health/PE), Fine & Performing Arts (F&PA), and Math Extended.

Standards outline what students should know, and be able to do, by the time they graduate. Standards are concise written descriptions that describe educational objectives. The standards do not describe any particular teaching practice, curriculum, or assessment method.

The Math Extended Standards committee will meet June 14-16, 2019. This committee will work on aligning extended standards, for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities, to the newly adopted 2018 Wyoming Mathematics Standards. Those interested in serving on this committee should complete the Math Extended Call for Participants Survey by April 21, 2019.

Both committees for Fine and Performing Art (F&PA) and Health/PE will meet August 15-17, 2019. Those interested in serving on the F&PA committee should complete the F&PA Call for Participants Survey by April 28, 2019. Those interested in serving on the PE/Health committee should complete the Health/PE Call for Participants Survey by April 28, 2019.

Completing any one of the three surveys expresses interest in participating but does not commit anyone to serving on the review committee. Standards committee members will be chosen from the list of those interested and contacted directly through the email address provided in the survey.
