Error on page 28 of RFP 143

Thanks to Mansfield's Steve Sokoloski for catching an omission on the 4th bullet on page 28.

State the Curricular Standard(s) Addressed by this AE (including state, national frameworks or curriculum and/or model state curriculum)

The 4th bullet asks you to indicate what standard the AE is addressing...several districts are working with SDE on piloting model would be helpful if districts that mention model curriculum would also mention the state standard that they are addressing...
