The State Board reviewed the proposed draft of the civic-readiness definition at the October, November, and December meetings. The definition will be brought back to the Board in February for further consideration.
Additionally, a proposed item has been developed to add to the EBA related to measuring civic readiness. No action has been taken on that particular item.
Beginning in June 2017, NDE staff began an examination of the direction set by the State Board of Education through regulations found in NDE Rule 10 (Accreditation of Schools), Rule 11 (Approval of Early Childhood Education Programs), Rule 24 (Endorsements on Certificates), and Rule 51 (Special Education) for instruction in reading and mathematics, and intervention services to be provided to students in those subject areas.
In October 2017, the State Board Legislative Committee reported to the Board and Commissioner draft language that could be included in those rules.
In addition, the Commissioner and NDE staff have continued to meet with Senators to align work in these areas.
