AZ Science and History & Social Sciences Standards Review/Public Feedback

The draft of the Arizona Science Standards and the draft of the Arizona History & Social Science Standards is currently available for review as of March 26, 2018. The survey to collect public comments on the draft is open and will remain open until May 28, 2018.

Tips for making comments:

  • Please be specific, providing actionable feedback along with suggested changes when possible. 
  • Remember to comment not only on items of concern, but also those items that have been done well, as well as ones you would like to keep in the standard.

In addition to the online survey, the AZ Department of Education will hold two face-to-face Public/Community Meetings.

  • History and Social Science will be held Thursday, April 5, 2018, 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
  • Science will be held Friday, April 6, 2018, 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Both meetings will be located at the Arizona Department of Education, in the State Board of Education Board Room, 1535 W. Jefferson, Conf. 122, Phoenix, AZ 85007. A recorded version of the live meetings will also be available on demand.
