Improving Science Education
The California Board of Education adopted the Next Generation Science standards (NGSS) in 2013, creating a set of research-based K-12 science standards for California in order 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 VUSD. We encourage you to read through this information and if you have additional questions, please contact Bret Klopfenstein.
