Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

Ohio has been selected as one of 20 states to lead the development of the national Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The standards will define natural science and engineering content and practices that students must learn from kindergarten through high school graduation. The goal is to build a strong science foundation in the nation’s students that leads to improved college and career readiness. Ohio will work with other lead-state partners to guide the standards-writing process, gather and deliver feedback from each other and address common issues and challenges.
