— May 27, 2014

(Press release) — The Wyoming Department of Education has issued a call to all Wyoming residents who are interested in serving on the 2014 Wyoming Science Standards Review Committee. The work of this committee will begin this summer with 2-4 days of meetings in July and August and continue for approximately 10-18 months. The department anticipate another 1-4 days of meetings during the 2014-2015 school year.

The science standards will outline what students should know and be able to do at the end of a grade level. Standards are concise, written descriptions that describe educational objectives. They do not describe any particular teaching practice, curriculum, or assessment method.

The survey will close at 11:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014.

Please note: Completing this survey does not commit you to anything at this time, nor does it sign you up to serve. You are simply expressing an interest to participate. Standards committee members will be chosen from the list of those interested and will be contacted directly through the email address they provide in the survey.
