Dear District Administrators,
The State Superintendent has developed and used a transparent and inclusive process to review and revise academic standards. Provided in this email for your review and distribution is a link to the draft of the Wisconsin academic standards under revision that have been developed by our state-wide writing committee and informed by key stakeholders from Wisconsin.
We are now in a 30-day public and legislative comment period. We will be holding one virtual public hearing. The hearing will take place from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on February 9, 2021.
Following the public review, the writing committee will meet again to make changes/revisions to this draft based on input provided during the review period and present the changes at the next meeting of the State Superintendent’s Academic Standards Review Council in March.
This is exciting work, and we have had very positive feedback from educators and business experts in this area who were engaged in the key stakeholders feedback.
I am providing you links to the news release, content area webpage, the standards posted online, and the online feedback form available for public comment:
