New Science Standards for California

On September 4, 2013, the California State Board of Education adopted new science education standards, the Next Generation Science Standards for California. Still to be determined is the arrangement of the middle school standards. This issue will be taken up at the November 4 – 5 meeting of the State Board. Implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards is still a few years away (2015/2016 at the earliest). An implementation plan, curriculum framework, curriculum, instructional materials, professional development for teachers, and assessments will need to be developed.
