This is a short post to let you know about a webinar this Wednesday, January 9th titled: Realizing the Vision: NGSS District Implementation. In Washington, the state, we are engaging statewide to better support districts with NGSS implementation and I’m sure there will be some important ideas shared at this meeting.

The Board on Science Education (BOSE) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) and Achieve are convening a meeting to explore the needs of districts implementing the Next Generation Science Standards and similar standards based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education.
The meeting is intended to surface lessons learned, productive collaborations across districts, and future challenges of implementing these standards and to identify ways that Achieve and BOSE—as well as other organizations with an interest in the Framework and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)—can work together to build districts’ capacity to improve science instruction for all students.
The focus on districts here is intentional: while the work enacting NGSS takes place at many levels in the educational system, school districts play a critical role as they implement national and state policies while managing local needs and the complexities of classrooms and communities.
