Applications sought for world language standards committees

(FRANKFORT, KY) – Applications are being accepted for the World Language Standards Review Committee and Advisory Panel.

Senate Bill 175 (2019) calls for the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) to implement a process for reviewing all academic standards and aligned assessments beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. This year, standards for world language will be reviewed and revised based upon the processes outlined in SB 175.

KDE is seeking teachers of all grade levels and postsecondary educators to participate in this work. Those selected will be required to meet in Frankfort for five to 10 days during the 2019-2020 school year, with possible meetings taking place in the 2020-2021 year.

Potential applicants are asked to verify the willingness of their school or district to release them for work dates throughout the school year. School districts will be reimbursed for substitute teacher expenses and selected team members will receive reimbursement for travel expenses.

The online application will be posted for 30 days. Applications will be accepted through Sept. 18. Selected team members will be notified on or before Oct. 18.  

Questions on this process can be directed to standards@education.ky.gov.
