Monday’s SBE meeting will also include a discussion on draft Science, History, and Social Science Standards. An updated draft of the standards was released in August. The board will hear a presentation on the status of those drafts. The latest drafts are attached to Agenda Item 5C. Superintendent Douglas has also requested to discuss a different option, used by the Barney Charter School Initiative, a project of Hillsdale College. Hillsdale college is a self-described “non-sectarian Christian institution” located in Hillsdale, Michigan. A copy of the entire BCSI scope and sequence is attached to agenda item 5D. While there is no action recommended on these items on Monday, ASBA has historically supported a standards revision process that follows the recommendations of a committee of Arizona educators assembled to review and recommend changes. Please email comments regarding the draft standards to inbox@azsbe.az.gov by 11a Friday for them to be provided to all SBE members prior to Monday’s meeting.
