The State Board is scheduled to act on an emergency regulation that identifies high school courses that comply with the legislative requirement for four years of mathematics at that level.

9:10 a.m.         Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
The State Board will review a proposed regulation that would add a certification endorsement for a STEM instructional leader at the elementary school level.
