In regards to a letter from Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia, The New York State Education Department launched an online survey affording New York residents to provide detailed feedback on the state's English Language Arts (ELA)/literacy and math Common Core Learning Standards for pre-kindergarten through grade 12. Teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, the business community, and anyone with an interest in the future of New York school systems are encouraged to participate in the review.

The survey will be open until Nov. 30, 2015, and the results will help inform changes made to the standards. An advisory group - made up of stakeholders, particularly teachers, school administrators, and parents - will review the survey results and recommendations and present suggested changes to the standards.
