The state has posted proposed social studies curriculum standards for a 30-day public commenting period.

If approved, the Georgia Standards of Excellence will be implemented in the 2017-18 school year, following a year of teacher training.

The draft standards, along with supporting documentation, are available at georgiastandards.org. Comments will be taken through 5 p.m. June 3.

The proposed standards were developed based on a formal review and evaluation process.

The state Board of Education postponed the adoption of the Social Studies GSE at its March 31 meeting. Social studies committee members reconvened and made additional recommendations April 20.
