An initial stakeholder meeting was held on October 4, 2016 and provided a brief background on the Title 5 standards and the major concepts expressed previously by stakeholders. A recording of this meeting with transcript is available at Title 5 Webinar.

Additional opportunities for stakeholder input will be scheduled over the coming months. Please periodically check the “What’s new page” or follow the Division on Twitter External link opens in new window or tab. for updates. Comments may also be submitted at: or via US Mail.

Following the conclusion of these meetings, CDE will review all the comments and prepare draft regulations as needed and request the State Board of Education to open the public comment period.
