Special Announcement from the Iowa Department of Education
 
The Iowa Department of Education has announced a series of February public forums and a statewide survey following a state panel’s recommendation to get public feedback on the Next Generation Science Standards. These are a set of learning expectations in science for students in kindergarten through high school. The Next Generation Science Standards were developed by 26 states, including Iowa. All states can consider adopting and adapting them to meet their needs.
 
Public feedback will be used to provide guidance to the Science Standards Review Team, which is expected to submit a final recommendation regarding science standards to the State Board of Education later this year.
 
The survey, which is open through February 27, can be found at the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VW6SHDY?c=Iowa_Science_Survey
