The application for the Curriculum Framework and Evaluation Criteria Committee (CFCC) closed on Thursday, December 15, 2016. The Instructional Quality Commission will review the submitted applications and recommend CFCC members to the State Board of Education. The State Board of Education is scheduled to appoint members of the CFCC in March 2017.

In addition, the section on Family Living (pages 63-64) is inconsistent with the current state law.
