Department Of Education Looking For Work Group Applicants

The South Dakota Department of Education says it’s looking for people who want to review education content standards.
    
The agency says people are encouraged to apply to participate by March 4.
    
Starting in the summer, South Dakota is reviewing standards in content areas such as math and English language arts.
    
The standards represent a map for the knowledge students should have and what they should be able to do by the end of every grade.
    
The work group review allows interested people including teachers and business representatives to analyze the state’s content standards.
    
Members are expected to become familiar with standards resources and materials before initial work group meetings.
