CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: MATH STANDARDS REVIEW COMMITTEE
CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Education (WDE) is seeking residents who are interested in serving on the Wyoming Math Standards Review Committee (MSRC). The committee begins work in the summer of 2017, with 2-6 days of meetings June through August. Additional meetings may occur throughout the next year. Math standards outline what students should know and be able to do at the end of each grade level and by the time they graduate. Standards are concise written descriptions that describe educational objectives. They do not describe any particular teaching practice, curriculum, or assessment method.
Those interested in serving on this committee should complete the Call for Participants Survey. The survey closes at 11:59 p.m. on April 11, 2017.
Completing this survey expresses interest in participating, though it does not commit anyone to serving on the Review Committee. Standards committee members will be chosen from the list of those interested, and will be contacted directly through the e-mail address provided in the survey.
