Indiana Academic Standards Review 2014 Evaluation Process

Posted: Fri, 02/14/2014 - 8:12am Updated: Thu, 04/17/2014 - 2:29pm


Public Law 286 was passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2013, which creates Indiana Code 20-19-2-14.5 concerning the State Board of Education's responsibility to review Indiana's Academic Standards. This charge specifically mandates the State Board to develop college and career readiness standards for Mathematics and English/Language Arts compliant with state and federal requirements before July 1, 2014 and to hold public hearings on the proposed standards prior to adoption.

Review and Evaluation Process

DOE and SBOE staff briefed the State Board on February 6, 2014 on the planned review and evaluation process. An overview and timeline of that process can be found here here. Members of the evaluation panels can be found here here. The review and evaluation process includes multiple reviews by the State Board of Education and the Indiana Education Roundtable. Final adoption of the standards by the State Board is scheduled for April 9, 2014. A general timeline of events has been created and posted here.
