Dear Elementary and Secondary School Principals,

Last week, the New York State Board of Regents  approved the new  and final Social Studies Framework that is to be used as a guide as we continue to align curriculum to the New York State Common Core Learning Standards.  The framework may be found on the EngageNY website:

The following resources should be reviewed as social studies teachers prepare for next year:
1.  New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework Video
2.  New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework Introduction
3.  New York State K-8 Social Studies Framework
4.  New York State 9-12 Social Studies Framework

Please share this information with your teachers.

With best regards,
================================
Mr. Anthony Biscione
Senior Deputy Superintendent of Schools
