NYS p-12 Science Learning Standards Resources



Latest Update From NYS SED Science Education (March 2018)

From the NYS SED CI&A Science Web page:

To continue to raise awareness and build capacity locally, regional and statewide, our program office provides this Science Learning Standards Spring 2018 presentation.
During Phase I: Initial Transition-Raise Awareness and Build Capacity, resources to assist and facilitate raising awareness and building capacity will continue to be developed to assist and support the facilitation of educators and stakeholders at the State, regional and local levels. 

*Note-The NYSP-12SLS connection boxes are currently being updated to reflect the New York State Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards (2017), and New York State Next Generation English Language Arts Learning Standards (Revised 2017).

NYS Science Education Ecosystem Network

The New York State Science Education Ecosystem Network identifies major assets that can support teaching and learning initiatives in science across the state. Aspects of the New York State Science Education Ecosystem Network will continue to build on the educational infrastructure at the state, regional and local levels. The intention of the Ecosystem Network design is to facilitate collaborations and partnerships to meet regional and local needs/desires for science standard implementation.

Phase 1: Initial Transition 

(2017 - 2018 SCHOOL YEAR)
Raise Awareness, Build Capacity of new NYS P-12 Science Learning Standards; Collaborate with relevant stakeholder groups to build awareness of the new NYS P-12 Science Learning Standards across the state.

Develop and propose assessment frameworks for State assessments in science

Assessment System Transition

  • New local and state-level assessments will need to be developed to measure the learning expectations included in the new standards.
  • New local and state-level assessments should focus on evaluating student achievement of three-dimensional learning - Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas.
  • Proposed State Assessments:
    • Grade 5
    • Grade 8
    • High School Regents examinations in life-science/Biology, Chemistry, Earthand Space Science, and Physics

(source "Science Learning Standards Spring 2018 presentation")

Moving Forward

  • Continue to collaborate with science education stakeholders during the transition to new NYS P-12 Science Learning Standards to develop the NYS Comprehensive Science Standards Systems Implementation Plan

  • Continue to identify STEM assets and Initiatives across the State to build a Statewide Science Education Ecosystem Network
  • Target specific State and federal funding sources to signal fiscal resources to support statewide, regional and local initiatives, as well as seek possible grant opportunities to support the implementation of the Statewide Strategic Plan for Science
  • Strive to maintain fidelity with the Statewide Strategic Plan for Science throughout the transition period
