NC DPI’s ‘stakeholder’ Common Core ‘survey’, where one has to go LINE BY LINE and GRADE BY GRADE giving input on the standards, is still ongoing.
The deadline is April 30th.

More from the February Academic Standards Review meeting write-up:
You have to review the standards line by line and either approve of the standard or say it needs revision with a spot for revision suggestions/comments on the standard at hand.
There is no way to save your spot and come back. You have to complete the section in one shot.
No identifiers are present; anyone can take this survey from anywhere – just like the teacher version.
Be prepared to sit a long time if you do the survey, I did just one grade level in the ELA and it took me over 40 minutes and was over 20 pages long. One has to wonder if the protracted time it takes just to do one grade level in one subject is a bug or a feature?
Survey Details and link:
NC public school parents and community members are invited to go online and give their feedback on the standards for English language arts and mathematics instruction for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The NC Department of Public Instruction has launched the online survey for parents and community members to provide feedback on the standards currently in place for students.
The survey is available at http://ncdpireview.weebly.com until April 30.
