Kansas Curricular Standards for English Language Arts Review
By legislative mandate, Kansas reviews curricular standards every seven years. This means the standards for English Language Arts, adopted in 2010, are currently undergoing a review so that they will be ready to put before the State Board of Education in Fall 2017.

A committee has been working on the review since May 2016. Below are two PowerPoint documents that provide updates about the process and some of the proposed changes to the document.

A draft of the 2017 ELA Standards is now available for public comment. Please access the full draft using the link at the bottom of the page.

Additionally, a survey is available for interested persons to provide feedback and input about the current draft. Please access the survey using this link: https://goo.gl/forms/51SKusoXqUJ2r5S93
