The revised Minnesota K-12 Social Studies Standards have been posted on the Minnesota Department of Education website.
The posted document is the final draft of the proposed revision of the 2004 standards. This draft is currently proceeding through the administrative rule-making process. If adopted into rule, the 2011 standards must be implemented into schools no later than the 2013-2014 school year.
At the MCSS conference, assistant commissioner Rose Chu will be presenting in the afternoon, focusing on the standards and the revision process.
