First public review of Next Generation Science Standards begins
The initial draft of the Next Generation Science Standards was released for public comment on Friday, May 11. The draft standards and a public comment survey will be available for a period of three weeks at www.nextgenscience.org.
The goal of the public release period is to distribute the draft standards to interested parties and to receive feedback from those stakeholders. South Dakota is one of 26 lead states involved in development of the standards.
The National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Achieve are the lead partners in the process to develop the Next Generation Science Standards.
