Economic Impact Survey for Social Studies Standards
The Office of Public Instruction must utilize a negotiated rulemaking committee to consider proposed changes to accreditation standards (including content standards). In addition to the negotiated rulemaking committee requirement, the OPI is charged with writing an economic impact analysis in accordance with MCA 2-4-405.

In order to carefully prepare the economic impact analysis, the OPI would appreciate your responses to the questions in this survey. We recommend a review of current expenditures for personnel, instructional materials, professional development, and curriculum development for the social studies content and program standards before responding to the questions. If adopted by the Board of Public Education, new standards would go into effect on July 1, 2021.

There are 25 questions: 10 are required, 15 are optional. It will take approximately 15 minutes to review the proposed standards and 15 minutes to complete the survey. The survey is due by midnight on June 30, 2020.


If you have any questions about this survey, contact Colet Bartow, Director of Content Standards and Instruction at or 406-444-3583.
