Mohonasen residents are urged to take the New York State Education Department AimHighNY online survey regarding Common Core Learning Standards in English language arts and math.
Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Spring applauded SED’s efforts to gather public input.
“The survey provides anyone with an interest in the future of education the opportunity to offer comments on what they like or do not like about particular standards and to provide suggestions for changes,” said Spring. “I am encouraged by State Education Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia’s efforts. I believe she is willing to listen, process what she hears from a wide range of stakeholders – including those who are involved on the front lines of working with children – and work on implementing changes in areas where there are great concerns.”
Elia announced the online survey late October.
“The results of the survey will directly inform any changes that we make to the standards as a result of the review,” wrote Elia on the AimHighNY website.
According to SED, teams of state educators will review survey results and provide recommendations to the Board of Regents. Any changes made as a result of the review would not be implemented until the 2016-17 school year or later.
