Illinois Learning Standards (Science)

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) 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.
NGSS was adopted by the Illinois State Board of Education on February 19, 2014. The NGSS Science Standards will go into effect beginning in the 2016-17 School Year
