Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
With all 50 states and the District of Columbia having adopted college- and career-ready standards in English and mathematics, Achieve's seventh annual "Closing the Expectations Gap" report shows how all states are aligning those standards with policies to send clear signals to students about what it means to be academically prepared for college and careers after high school graduation. For the first time, the report also details not only states' policy progress on the college- and career-ready agenda but also their efforts to implement those policies since only faithful implementation can improve student achievement. The report was released during the opening session of Achieve's eighth annual American Diploma Project Leadership Team Meeting in Alexandria, Va., which brought together nearly 300 education leaders in cross-sector teams from 34 states.
