Next Generation Science Standards

UPDATE: Next Generation Science Standards

The Next Generation Science Standards were approved by the Vermont State Board of Education in June 2013. These standards are now considered to be the foundation of all Vermont science instruction. School programs will gradually incorporate these standards into curricula and instruction. School year 2013-2014 is considered to be an Awareness time, wherein teachers will begin to become familiar with these new standards and will blend portions of these standards into their existing instruction. Professional development and instructional resources will be available through the Agency of Education and other sources.

If you have questions regarding NGSS, please contact Kathy Renfrew or Gail Hall.
