The Alabama College- and Career-Ready Standards Review is now open for any parent, educator, community member or anyone interested, to review, agree or disagree and comment on the standards our students are learning in public schools.
We invite you to participate now through December 15. At the conclusion of the review, the feedback will be considered by the Mathematics and English language arts Course of Study committee members. They may then make recommendations to the State Board of Education.
Thank you for participating in the review. Engagement in our schools is a crucial factor for student success.
