Louisiana Student Standards Review

About Louisiana Student Standards Review

Standards are statements that define the knowledge and skills that students need to learn throughout their education in order to successfully transition to college and the workplace. In Louisiana, standards are reviewed once every seven years to ensure that what is being taught in the classroom will effectively prepare students for college and a career.


Science

The Louisiana science standards are currently under review by a diverse group of 86 individuals representing several education associations, local school systems, and key stakeholder organizations representing parents and business and industry leaders. The drafted standards are available for public review December 1, 2016–January 6, 2017. The final standards will be considered by BESE for adoption in March 2017.

English language arts and Mathematics

As part of this process, Louisiana underwent a professional review of the state’s academic content standards for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics during the 2015-2016 school year to ensure that they continue to maintain strong expectations for teaching and learning aligned with college and workplace demands. Over 100 Louisiana educators, as well as representatives from Louisiana universities, business and industry, and parent groups, participated in the review and development of new standards for ELA and math. An overview of the process, a full list of committee members, and meeting agendas and materials can be found here.

Members of the public can send feedback on the science standards to LouisianaStandards@la.gov at any time.
