COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Education officials in Ohio are asking parents, teachers and other residents to help refine learning standards in the state.
The Ohio Department of Education wants residents to review math and English standards using an online survey.
The standards were adopted in 2010 as the state moved to Common Core and this is the first time the state has conducted a revision since the standards were put in place. They specify what students should learn at specific grade levels and stipulate what they should know when they finish high school.
Ohioans can review the standards and offer comments online at education.ohio.gov through April 5.
Officials say suggestions will be reviewed by an advisory committee and any revisions will be posted by next January.
