Public hearing on Manchester Academic Standards: July 17

posted Jul 11, 2014, 6:57 PM by Communications Coordinator
Members of the community are invited to a second public hearing to share their concerns and comments about the newly assembled Manchester Academic Standards. The Board of School Committee’s Curriculum and Instruction Committee will be hosting the hearing at Manchester High School West on Thursday, July 17 starting at 6:00 pm.

A committee comprised of teachers, administrators, learning standards experts, curriculum specialists, and higher education professors worked over the previous school year to assemble the standards document as an alternative to implementing the Common Core State Standards. The Manchester Academic Standards committee presented its framework for pre-k through twelfth grade curriculum at the June 9 Board of School Committee, and the presentation is available online.
