On Tuesday, February 2, 2016, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were brought to the Student Achievement Committee (SAC) for action on adoption. After testimony from the broader community and a detailed presentation by Dr. Lauren Kaupp, the SAC recommended the action to go to the next full board meeting. The next board meeting is scheduled for February 16, 2016. This is a substantial step toward for the NGSS. Congratulations to the NGSS team!
