Online portal opens for review of standards for science
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Education has launched the Louisiana Student Standards Review Portal , which gives parents, educators, and all other stakeholders the opportunity to provide input on Louisiana's Student Standards for science.
The portal provides the public with the first look at the initial draft of the new standards, and an opportunity to submit feedback on their content and relevancy in preparing students for a successful transition to college or a career.
The science standards review process, approved by the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education in June, is designed to replace Louisiana's current grade-level expectations for science which were established in 2005.
All public comments received through the portal by Jan. 6 will be shared with the workgroups and committee and will be posted on the department's website.
