The Arizona Department of Education is seeking people's comments on drafts of updated state standards for physical education and foreign and native language. 

"This is an excellent opportunity for Arizona parents and teachers to have a direct impact  on standards that affect our children,” Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said in a statement. “I am excited to hear their feedback and will work with my staff to ensure their thoughts are incorporated into the final versions of these drafts.”

The drafts up for review will be used to revise the state's current standards. Parents, teachers and others will be allowed to comment until March 2, 2015.

There are a few options: You can fill out surveys online, send a fax, letter or email (more inform on that here, Physical Education Standards, and here, Foreign and Native Language Standards).

The department also has some webinars in place in the coming days.

Foreign and Native Language Standards:
From 3:30 to 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20, 2015

From 4 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 23, 2015

From 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015
Physical Education Standards:

You have to register online for those. For language, here, and for PE, here.
