NGSS Study of Science Standards

This year, North Smithfield Schools will begin to study the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS.) The standards, developed by a consortium of 26 states, focus on content and practice. The standards have been internationally benchmarked, are organized across disciplines and grades and emphasize scientific inquiry. North Smithfield Schools is in the process of establishing a “NGSS Task Force.” The first task force meeting will be on October 1st, 2014 @ 2:30 in the NSMS Lecture Room.
