Proposed Academic Standards
KCSS strongly supports passing the proposed Social Studies Academic Standards.
Included here are links to three position papers summarizing our support around three key pillars:
We urge all Kentuckians, teachers and community members alike, to contact Kentucky Board of Education members and urge them to pass these standards.
We ask that you vary the letters you send and the dates that you send them.
For example, 1) you might send the first letter this week, the third letter next, and the second the week after or 2) your first round this week might be letter 1 to 1/3, letter 2 to 1/3, letter 3 to 1/3. Then rotating these thirds for the next three weeks in the build-up toward the February second reading.
Specializing these letters, your individual voice helps us promote Social Studies. If there is another perspective you'd like to advocate, by all means. KCSS wanted to provide a foundation to help.
