Agenda Item 7.0
Background: The State Board of Education adopts the SD standards revision cycle. The current standards revision cycle was adopted by the Board on November 29, 2010. The current revision cycle needs to be updated to reflect plans for bringing forward proposed standards for fine arts, physical education, science education, and career and technical education.
The proposed cycle outlines a five year rotation for career and technical education and a seven year rotation for other standards. A five year cycle for career and technical education is proposed to ensure districts are in alignment with industry demands and post-secondary changes in those industries. The other content areas do not change at the same rate, and therefore the proposal is to keep the same year span rotation.
