In New York State, we are committed to high learning standards and to evaluating our standards on a regular basis with input from stakeholders. On September 21, 2016, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) released new draft New York State P-12 English Language Arts and Mathematics Learning Standards. The new draft standards are the culmination of a year-long effort to gather feedback from teachers and parents. NYSED accepted public comments on the draft standards from September 21 through November 14. For more information about the standards review, watch this video of committee members and Commissioner Elia describing the standards review process.
