The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) is proposing revisions to the current College and Career Ready Standards in Mathematics. The revisions are part of the legislated review process that must take place every seven years.

The current Mathematic Standards were approved by the Kansas State Board of Education in December 2010. The public meetings will highlight the changes being proposed by the Kansas Standards Review Committee, which is comprised of educators, legislators, higher education, and other Kansas constituents.

What is the KSDE proposing:

A complete copy of the standards can be accessed at:  http://community.ksde.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=f9XiZKWgQMw%3d&tabid=6151&mid=15110. A summary/highlight of the changes are:
• Some content moved to different grade levels.
• Document format is easier to read.
• Document is interactive.
• Teacher and student glossary.
• Language clarifications.

Who is affected by these proposed standards:

Kansas teachers of mathematics in elementary, middle and high schools, as well as students and parents of both public and private accredited schools.
