The New York State Education Department officially launched a survey on Wednesday, Oct. 21 that asks teachers, parents, students and community members to weigh in on the Common Core Learning Standards.

The survey results will be considered initially by an advisory group that will provide recommendations to the State Education Department and the Board of Regents concerning appropriate revisions to the standards. (This survey does not encompass comments on the length or quality of New York's testing program and related teacher evaluation procedures; rather, it focuses on the academic expectations at each grade level.)

Participants who visit the department’s website can comment on each standard individually. The comment period will run for 40 days, the department has said.

We encourage your participation. View the survey here: www.nysed.gov/aimhighny.
