CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Revised Wyoming K-12 education standards with a new Native American history component could be ready for State Board of Education review in January or February.

Laurie Hernandez is division director of standards and assessment for the Department of Education.

Hernandez says a committee is being formed to develop the new social studies standards over the next couple of months, followed by review from the state education board.

She says public comment was taken during the summer about what should be included in the standards.

And teachers are being surveyed about which standards they thought could be updated and if they have any classroom practices that might be beneficial.

The Education Department also is conducting reviews of the math standards and extended science standards.
