Next Generation Science Standards for Today’s Students and Tomorrow’s Workforce: Through a collaborative, state-led process managed by Achieve, new K–12 science standards have been developed that are rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education. The NGSS is based on the Framework for K–12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council.
NJ was one of 26 lead state partners that helped develop the NGSS. The new standards were formally adopted for use in all NJ public schools in July of 2014.
Below you will find a listing of resources to help you understand and implement the NGSS:
