HSS Framework revision delayed; funding of final work not budgeted

01/27/2015 5:10 PM | James E. Hill

The Instructional Quality Commission has on its agenda for its Feb 5-6 meeting a new timeline for finishing the History Social Science Framework revision. The date of adoption of the new Framework will be moved from May 2015 to March 2016. No reasons were given in the posted timeline for the delay. 

According to the new timeline, the IQC will 'analyze field review results and revise draft framework' from June to September 2015, and 'hold hearings and take action on draft framework' at a September 24-25 2015 meeting. A note is added that indicates this meeting is 'pending funding of the IQC'. The IQC is not funded in the state budget for work past summer 2015. If budgeted, there will be more opportunities for public input and also hearings at the IQC and State Board prior to adoption of the revised Framework. 


The new timeline has publication of the Framework slated for Fall 2016.

    Does this mean we won't have end of year state testing in Social Studies until 2017-18?
