Academic standards define what students should know and be able to do in an area of study. In Wisconsin, all state standards serve as a model. Locally elected school boards adopt academic standards in each subject area to best serve their local community.

This survey is part of a review and revision process in which all Wisconsin academic standards regularly engage. Your responses will be shared with the Standards Review Council, who may recommend revision to the State Superintendent. If the State Superintendent determines revisions are necessary, your responses will be further shared with a writing committee.

Additional considerations:
  • Please complete this survey only once.
  • We will only consider feedback from Wisconsin residents.
  • The survey is open through August 12, 2021
The current Wisconsin Standards for Nutrition are available here.
