Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: December 2, 2022 11:20 AM
From: Senator Doug Mastriano
To: All Senate members
Subject: Improving Curriculum Transparency in K-12 Schools
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation that will allow parents to play a much more active role in the oversight of what their children are taught.

My bill will require a school entity to post on a publicly accessible website an internet link or title from every textbook used, a course syllabus, and the state academic standards for each instructional course offered.  

Additionally, the information must be updated by the school entity no later than 30 days after it is revised.
School entities will not be required to violate any copywrite, trademark or other intellectual property rights.

By having easy access to an online link that is periodically updated, time-strapped parents will be better informed of what their children are learning.

Openness and transparency should be promoted in all facets of our taxpayer funded government entities and that especially includes local schools.

Please consider joining me as a co-sponsor.

Introduced as SB340
