New Changes to Science Standards Focus on Science Literacy and Involvement

The final draft of the new guidelines for K-12 science education, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), were unveiled on April 9th.  These new, voluntary standards identify the key science and engineering content that students will need to be aware of to be successful in later college and careers.

Next Generation Science Standards Website (Phase 3 Launch)

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) will be based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council. The bipartisan, non-profit organization Achieve coordinated the development of the NGSS. Through a collaborative, state-led process, new K-12 science standards were developed that are rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades in order to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education. The Next Generation Science Standards Phase 3 launch is step 6 in a 9-step process to develop, review, revise, and publish the new national science education standards.
