Introducing the NGSS Learning Series
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) describe the key scientific ideas and engineering practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate high school. These performance expectations for kindergarten through high school were designed to better integrate STEM learning and to prepare all students for success in college and career.
The following online learning modules were designed to provide clear information for teachers, school leaders, families and community members about what the NGSS cover, how they were developed, and how they will be implemented in DC schools.
This website provides free content and tools designed to help educators understand and implement the Common Core State Standards and other college and career ready standards.
Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) website offers information about the assessment consortium and its members, the PARCC next generation assessment system and its implementation and resources for educators about PARCC and the classroom.
