The science standards are up for review and that public comment is vital in the process.
The NJDOE is required to review and revise, as appropriate, academic standards every five years. The science standards went to the state board with no changes, as recommended by the review committee. Last month, the Commissioner directed all of the content areas to enhance the presence of Climate Change in the academic standards. We were able to accommodate the directive with very few amendments to the science standards. I have attached a document that identifies all of the changes.
The amended NJSLS-S can be viewed here.
Please send feedback regarding the Draft 2020 NJSLS–S to firstname.lastname@example.org. Public comment closes on March 30, 2020.
The NJDOE will hold public comment sessions on:
- February 24 at Warren County Technical School;
- March 4 at the NJDOE, 100 Riverview Plaza, Trenton, New Jersey; and
- March 10 at Camden County College.
