Public Comments Being Accepted for Course of Study
Part of the process of adopting any Course of Study in Alabama is making a draft available to the public and providing an opportunity for input. Revisions are made from that input before the document is presented to the Alabama State Board of Education for adoption.
This year, the Course of Study is being adopted for Mathematics, Physical Education, and Health Education. The easiest way to examine these drafts is to download them from the Alabama State Department of Education website. To download these documents, click the links as follows:
If you have comments, the easiest way to communicate those is to e-mail Dr. Sara Mason at the Alabama State Department of Education. Her address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline to submit public comments is November 3.
Having serves on a Course of Study committee, public comments are taken very seriously. Every single comment is read to the committee. The committee makes a decision to accept, reject, or partially accept the recommendation made in that comment. In addition, the committee provides a rationale for the decision, and that reasoning is documented in writing and becomes part of the official record of that Course of Study committee.
