History, Government and Social Studies Curricular Standards Review

The Kansas State Department of Education is seeking public comment on the initial draft of new History, Government and Social Studies standards.  Your input is important and the committee will consider all comments made on this public comment platform.


  • Search for standards that you want to rate by using the drop down boxes below.
  • Once the standards you have chosen have loaded, the arrow to the left of the title of the standard will allow you to expand the standard to show all of the benchmark for a given standard.
  • To rate the standards use the stars on the right of the title. Clicking on a star will rate the standard.
  • If you would like to leave comments or feedback on any of the benchmarks for a standard, check the checkbox next to that standard's benchmark and a comment box will appear below the selected benchmark. Once you have entered feedback or comments, clicking outside the comment box or on the "Save Comment' Button will save the comment.

You do not need to complete the survey all at once. Each time that you visit the site, your previous ratings and feedback will be visible to you so that you can continue where you left off.

If you would like to see this message again, please click the 'Help' icon on the lower right of the page.
