Board seeks public comment on proposed World Language standards

The Utah State Board of Education is currently soliciting public comments about newly proposed World Language K-12 Core Standards.

In early January, a draft of the new standards was presented to the Board of Education’s Standards and Assessment Committee, which recommended it be distributed for public comment before a final draft is considered for adoption by the Board later this year.

These new, proficiency-based standards were requested by multiple school districts, charter schools, teachers, parents, business leaders, universities and legislators. They represent a revision of the 2009 World Language Core Standards and are a result of work done by a committee supervised by Gregg Roberts, Utah State Office of Education’s World Language Specialist. The proposed new Core Standards have already been reviewed by several interested parties already, including all K-12 world language and dual language immersion teachers in Utah.

Now, the Board seeks input from the public. Below you will find a link to the proposed Core Standards.

Those who wish to submit comments should email Gregg Roberts by April 1, 2014, at
