An Horry County Schools educator is on the team that will be writing the state’s new educational standards for English language arts.

Cynthia Magrath, a literacy and instructional coach for the district, is part of the 19-member team, which already has had its first meeting, according to the S.C. Department of Education. The ELA team will focus on all components of ELA, including reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing and researching.

Legislators voted in favor of writing new standards to replace the Common Core State Standards that are in place for the 2014-15 school year. Members of the ELA and math rewrite teams were selected from 365 educator nominations the education department received from around the state.
