The recommendations of the 2013 Governor's Task Force for Improving Education have received broad support from stakeholder groups across the state, and the 2014 Legislature enacted laws to some of the specific recommendations.
However, many of the recommendations require further study and development of plans for implementation.
This year, the Governor asked the State Board of Education to create special committees to continue this work. Two committees have been established to develop proposals, including implementation strategies, timelines and required funding. In addition, a third working group is being established to address reading proficiency and literacy.
The first meeting of the two committees will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, April 7, 2014 at Boise State University.
The committees will meet jointly for organizational purposes and will then break and meet separately to begin their work.
The meetings of the committees will be open to the public.
