In our constant effort to continually improve outcomes for students in Grades K-12, the Alabama State Department of Education is asking for public feedback specifically related to the current Alabama College- and Career-Ready Standards for English/language arts and mathematics.  This annual review offers an opportunity for those who are genuinely interested in improving education to offer feedback related to each standard for English/language arts and mathematics by grade.

​The public review will begin January 11, 2016 and conclude on March 14, 2016.  Please Click Here

At the conclusion of the public review, the feedback generated will go to the state English/Language Arts and Mathematics Course of Study (COS) teams. The comments that will be considered for action by the teams are those of academic substance that are tied specifically to a standard.  The COS teams may then provide recommendations to the Alabama State Board of Education.
