NYS Science Learning Standards - Draft

released

As you may know, with considerable support and participation from STANYS, members of the New York State Science Education Consortium have been working with the New York State Education Department on the development of a new set of P - 12 science learning standards. At this time, the Executive Committee of STANYS strongly encourages its science education colleagues to participate in a thoughtful review of the draft of the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS).     Several teams of New York educators have been involved in the development of the draft standards and a survey is now available for additional input from education stakeholders. Your input into this process will not only help to ensure that these Standards will serve the needs of our current and future students, but will also have a positive impact on our profession. - See more at: http://stanys.org/news.html#sthash.nSk6keVd.dpuf
