The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has just released the second draft of the K-12 Science Standards. This is most likely the environmental education community's final chance to share feedback in the standards revision process.
Just like we did with the first draft, EENC has compiled the links and information you need to know to help you prepare to complete the survey.
A few things to note in this round of feedback:
- It is important for all environmental educators in our state to provide feedback! This information will be review by the Data Review Committee to determine which comments and recommendations will be shared with the Standards Writing Team - so be sure to submit your individual response to ensure your voice is heard!
- This survey is more holistic and does not offer the option for line-by-line feedback. If you have specific recommendations, be sure to include those in the open-ended response at the end of each grade.
- We recommend you review the compiled recommendations from the environmental education community from the first draft before you submit your feedback.
Please be sure to complete the survey by March 26 to help ensure that environmental learning is incorporated in our state's science standards at every grade level!
