Marathon Central School District

Embrace  *  Educate  *  Empower


The New York State Education Department today launched an online survey for New Yorkers to provide detailed feedback on the state’s Common Core standards in English Language Arts and math. The results of the survey, the department says, will be used to inform changes to the standards as the department undergoes a review of the controversial program (a Gov. Cuomo-appointed committee is conducting a separate, concurrent review of the program). 

The survey will be open until Nov. 30.  An advisory group will review the results and then make recommendations to the department. 

In a letter to teachers Tuesday, Commissioner MaryEllen Elia encouraged teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, the business community and “anyone with an interest in the future of our schools” to participate in the survey. “It’s time for us to step back and assess where we are and where we should be going,” she wrote. “You work with students every day. You know what’s working and what’s not. Your classrooms are the front line in our struggle to help our students aim higher.”
