California's Science Adoption

In September 2013, the State Board of Education adopted the Next Generation Science Standards for California Public Schools, kindergarten through grade 12 (CA NGSS) based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Rigorous standards, supported by aligned, high quality instructional materials, are critical for student learning and teacher success.
