(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – A call is going out to all Wyoming residents who are interested in serving on the 2014 Wyoming Science Standards Review Committee, according to the Wyoming Department of Education. The work of this committee will begin this summer with 2-4 days of meetings in July and August and continue for approximately 10-18 months. Another 1-4 days of meetings during the 2014-2015 school year is anticipated, the release indicated.

The remaining text of the release is copied below:

“The science standards will outline what students should know and be able to do at the end of a grade level. Standards are concise, written descriptions that describe educational objectives. They do not describe any particular teaching practice, curriculum, or assessment method.

The survey will close at 11:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014.
