NYSED has now finalized the selection of the 16 parents that will be participating in the first phase of the Standards Review Committees for ELA and for Mathematics. Click here to read the thank you letter that NYSED sent to us for coordinating this effort which also lists the different organizations that we connected with when marketing this opportunity. To read the letter that NYSED sent to the over 300 applicants that thanks them for applying for the committees, click here.
The online application link for parents is included below. The application must be completed in its entirety for an applicant to be considered.
The application must be completed no later than April 14, 2016. In addition to the online application, applicants will need to complete and send three documents to the address below. Applications will not be considered unless all required documents are postmarked by April 14, 2016.
The required documents can be found below.
Section A of the BFM-1/20 Addendum (as highlighted)
Complete the Member Information Form and Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement in their entirety. Complete the highlighted parts (section A) of the BFM-1/20 Addendum. We will contact the individuals chosen for this committee by April 29, 2016.
In order to expedite the application process, we are requesting that all applicants fill out the three forms as part of their application. This will help us to begin the standards review work immediately after committee members are selected. The Member Information Sheet asks for standard contact information and the Conflict of Interest Statement is to ensure that applicants can be objective if selected to serve on the Standards Review Committees.
Those who serve on the Standards Review Committees will receive reimbursement for travel, meals, and lodging at the approved State rate. The BFM-1/20 Addendum is a standard reimbursement form used by the NYS Education Department. It must be filled out by any outside party (non-SED employee) who will receive compensation from our organization.
Please mail the completed documents to:
Office of Curriculum and Instruction
