Content Standards Revision in North Dakota

As part of REL Central, RMC Research staff helped to facilitate discussions surrounding the revision of the English Language Arts and Mathematics content standards in North Dakota. North Dakota’s Department of Public Instruction brought together educators from around the state to review and propose revisions to the content standards. The initial three-day meeting, held in June, was facilitated by REL Central staff and will be followed up with a two-day meeting later in the summer. Following the summer meetings, the revised content standard will be available for public comment before the group reconvenes to finalize the content standards for consideration by the State Superintendent. REL Central’s roles in this project include facilitating discussions between educators revising the standards, technical assistance as needed for those working to revise the standards, and editing/formatting of the document for further review.
