On March 31, 2016, the State Board of Education postponed the adoption of the Social Studies Georgia Standards of Excellence for further committee discussion. Social Studies committee members reconvened on April 20, 2016, to refine the draft Georgia Standards of Excellence.
On May 5, 2016, the State Board of Education approved the posting of the draft standards for 30 days of public review and comment. Based on survey data, the State Board of Education will review the standards for approval at the June 9, 2016, meeting. The tentative timeline for implementation will be during the 2017-2018 school year.
We are asking for your assistance in communicating this survey opportunity to your teachers, administrators, parents, and other education stakeholders.
The survey will be available beginning on Thursday, May 5, 2016, through Friday, June 3, 2016, 5:00 p.m. E.D.T.
