NASBE’s staff works closely with state board members and education & health personnel in the states to develop education policies that may be used as models for every state. The reports and policy models written as a part of the projects are made available to the education community, government officials, and the general public.

Epinephrine

With the rise in reported food allergies among students in the last 15 years, it is crucial that policymakers understand how to best prepare school personnel to deal with related health emergencies. NASBE is helping state boards of education as they develop student health policies regarding anaphylaxis and epinephrine access and use. Resources include specific state policy guides, policy updates, and webinars.

Next Generation Science Standards

Following the final release of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), state boards of education are the entities that will be charged with examining them based on their merits and the needs of their states, as well as with implementing the standards following adoption through policy, practice, and communications. With twenty-six leadership states involved in the development of the NGSS and with nearly all state boards having authority over the adoption and implementation of standards for their respective states, NASBE’s support will be critical in helping states make informed, evidence-based decisions.
