Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

Improving Science Education

The California Board of Education adopted the Next Generation Science standards (NGSS) with the objective of creating a set of research-based K-12 science standards to support two critical goals:

  • Educate all students in science and engineering
  • Provide the foundational knowledge for those who will become the next scientists, engineers, technologists and technicians of the future

This comprehensive NGSS resource page will provide you with the information you need to know about the new standards and how they will be implemented in IUSD. We encourage you to read through this information and if you have additional questions, please contact your school’s principal directly. Click here for a list of schools and principal contact information.
