Next Generation Science Standards Update - Draft Public Review

The release of the second and final public draft of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is set for the first week in January 2013. In recognition of the hectic schedules in December and the approaching holidays, the NGSS staff wanted to ensure all educators, stakeholders and the public had appropriate access to the draft. ODE encourages all interested parties to review the draft as individuals or in groups and provide feedback to the Lead States and writers.

The NGSS will be completed in March of 2013. Since the May draft release, the Lead States and the writers evaluated all feedback and worked on revising the standards. As a result, over 90% of the standards have been revised. In addition, the lead states charged the NGSS team with finalizing the definition for college and career readiness in science. The NGSS then went through a second round of revision to ensure the standards supported this definition.

More information will be provided as soon as it is available, including the link to the survey and exact dates for the feedback period, on the Oregon Department of Education Next Generation Science Standards webpage www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=3508 and the Achieve Next Generation Science Standards website www.nextgenscience.org. For additional questions please feel free to contact Cheryl Kleckner at cheryl.kleckner@state.or.us eMail or Rachel Aazzerah at rachel.aazzerah@state.or.us eMail.
