Update on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) – Public Review Coming Soon


Through a collaborative, state-led process, new K–12 science standards are being developed that will be rich in content and practice to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education. The NGSS are based on the Framework for K–12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council.

It is expected that the next draft of the NGSS will be released in late November / early December for the second Public Review.  Educators are encouraged to contribute valuable input.  Visit the NGSS website at www.nextgenscience.org for updates on when the Public Review window will occur.  Also on this NGSS website is information on free web seminars that are available for teachers to better understand the NGSS.
