Share your input on state math and English language arts standards. Back in March, Governor Doug Ducey asked the State Board of Education to review those standards to ensure that they are the best for Arizona’s students. A committee was created 1 month later to oversee the standards development. That committee will be hosting a public input meeting. According to Yavapai County School Superintendent Tim Carter, this will give area residents an opportunity to comment on which standards they like, which ones they would like to revise and which ones they want to see eliminated. The meeting is at 6 tonight in the Glassford Hill Middle School Auditorium on Panther Path in Prescott Valley.
