Public Law 286 was passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2013, which creates Indiana Code 20-19-2-14.5 concerning the State Board of Education's responsibility to review Indiana's Academic Standards. This charge specifically mandates the State Board to develop college and career readiness standards compliant with state and federal requirements before July 1, 2014 and to hold public hearings on the proposed standards prior to adoption.
DOE and SBOE staff briefed the State Board on February 6, 2014 on the planned review and evaluation process. An overview and timeline of that process can be found below. The review and evaluation process includes multiple reviews by the State Board of Education and the Indiana Education Roundtable. The Indiana Education Roundtable will review and vote on the standards on April 21, 2014. Final adoption of the standards by the State Board is scheduled sometime in late April. The Department of Education and State Board of Education have created a presentation to explain the process to various constituencies.
The proposed Indiana Academic Standards can be found here.
Please note - this is an initial draft of standards and as such they will be pared down during the articulation process.
Pursuant to IC 20-19-2-14.5(d)(2), the State Board held the following hearings. Hearing format and procedures information can be found here.
