Public Comments for Proposed Academic Standards

The HB1490 Work Group proposed standards are now available for public comment. Groups of parents and educators recently finished updating and revising the Missouri Learning Standards in math, science, social studies and English language arts. The Department welcomes public feedback on these proposed standards. Please review the proposed standards and leave comments by Dec. 2.

LifeChanger of the Year
Nominating a K-12 teacher or school employee as a LifeChanger of the Year acknowledges their hard work and provides the opportunity to win a cash award to be shared with their school. Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, it honors those who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership. Anyone can nominate any full-time K-12 public or private school employee.

Available Listservs
Did you know that the Department has email listservs for many different educational topics? From a list for those involved with Special Education to curriculum to school counselors, we use our listservs to distribute necessary information to those who want to know.
