NGSS - Next Generation Science Standards
New Curriculum will be coming to Salida Union School District to help teachers create engaging and hands-on learning in Science. During the 2018-19 school year, a Science Curriculum Adoption Committee is working together to review curriculum, test the curriculum with students, and make a recommendation on which curriculum to adopt as a district. In the meantime, teachers are designing lessons for students based on the Next Generation Science Standards in a hands-on, collaborative, and integrated environment around inquiry and discovery. Students will have the opportunity to think, problem-solve, communicate and collaborate while learning scientific concepts.
