CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia education officials have launched a website as part of a public review of the state’s math and English standards.

State Department of Education and school board officials said Wednesday the website is aimed at obtaining feedback from parents, teachers and others. It is part of the state’s evaluation of the Next Generation standards.

The comments will be analyzed this fall and a team of experts will make recommendations on any changes to the state Board of Education.

The board adopted the Next Generation standards in 2011. Developed by input from hundreds of teachers and administrators, they were implemented in state classrooms from 2011 to 2014.

State lawmakers have tried without success to repeal the standards.
