New Science Standards: A Readiness Assessment for State Policymakers

This webinar is now on-demand! Watch the full event here.

Since 2013, 13 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). While some states are deciding whether to sign on, other states are considering ways to modify existing science standards, adapt standards being used in other states, or develop their own.

Implementing, revising, adapting, or adopting new standards is a significant undertaking that requires extensive support, planning, and resources. Where do state policymakers begin?

Join NASBE for a webinar April 21, 2015, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EDT), as experts Dan Conley and Catherine Jacques, both from American Institutes for Research (AIR), discuss a new NASBE resource that guides state boards of education through the complex process of reviewing, adopting, and implementing new science standards. Paige Fenton Hughes, coordinator for the Wyoming State Board of Education, will explain the process her state is using to review science standards and decide on NGSS adoption.
