Public Review of

Draft 1 Documents

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is currently in the process of revising the Standard Course of Study for K-12 Social Studies. This work is part of State Board of Education Policy SCOS-012. The public review and comment period for the standards being revised for K-12 Social Studies will open on December 13, 2019 and will close February 15, 2020.


The feedback provided from these surveys will be used in conjunction with input from teachers, social studies specialists, schools of education, and social studies organizations across North Carolina to make quality improvements to documents released for the Draft 1 public review. Those decisions will be used to prepare for the second public review in March.
