LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

Schools in Region 8 may start using new mathematics standards after the summer is over.

The Arkansas Department of Education announced Thursday in a news release the State Board of Education approved the Arkansas Mathematics Standards for grades kindergarten through 12.

Following the approval, ADE will develop courses for high schools for approval in May.

According to the release, schools may begin implementation of the new standards during the 2016-17 school year. Full implementation of the standards will happen the following school year. 

The standards have been under review since October 2015. ADE states the review was initiated by feedback to legislators' offices, including the Governor's Council on Common Core Review.

More than 80 teachers, administrators and higher education professors were involved in the process.

"As a result of the review, 65 percent of the math standards were revised or clarified," ADE stated.

In addition, a community feedback survey for the Arkansas English Language Arts and Literacy Standards will be available Monday, April 18 on the ADE website.
