Social Studies Standards
This website is currently open for the first of two windows of public feedback on the state social studies standards. This first window will close April 30, 2016. You will find the current social studies standards posted on this site. The SBE will work in conjunction with the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) to collect all of the comments submitted to this website. Educator development teams will review the website feedback this summer and make revisions to the standards. Another draft set of standards will be posted following these changes in fall 2016 and an appointed Standards Recommendation Committee will make the ultimate recommendation for new social studies standards to the SBE in early 2017.

Math, ELA, and Science Standards
The State Board of Education launched a review website https://apps.tn.gov/tcas/ to collect public feedback on Tennessee’s K-12 Math, ELA, and Science standards. The website provides an opportunity for every Tennessean to participate in the first phase of a highly transparent and comprehensive standards review process. We encourage educators, parents, and other stakeholders to review the standards and provide feedback.
Data collected from this website will be given to a team of Tennessee educators to review; this data will inform the revisions of the standards. The revised standards and aligned assessments will be implemented in the 2018-19 school year.
Committees recently began the updating existing health education standards for all grade levels. These standards were last updated in 2006. The department has the responsibility of overseeing the review of these standards and is requesting stakeholder input. Please use the appropriate link below to provide feedback no later than Tuesday, May 31.
Feedback generated by these surveys will be provided to the appropriate review committee. Once all feedback has been considered, the standards will move to the State Board of Education for adoption.
