The Oregon Museum Association (OMA) is asking museums to respond to a survey regarding recommendations for Oregon Social Sciences Standards. OMA's president will take the results of this survey to the Oregon Social Sciences Summit in July. The purpose of the summit is to gather museum, education, government and tribal leaders as well as other stakeholders to make revision recommendations for the social sciences standards. From the museum perspective, this recommendation might include ways in which museums and other cultural organizations might be better supported in integrating field trips, outreach and student learning outside of school for our communities.

This survey can be found here<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OMAsocialsciences>.
