Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. 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.

This report provides a review of the South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards (SCCCRS) for English language arts and mathematics, adopted by the South Carolina Board of Education on March 11, 2015, to replace the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These new standards stem from state legislation signed by Governor Nikki Haley in 2014 requiring the state to review the CCSS and develop new standards for the 2015–16 academic year. The SCCCRS were developed by South Carolina teachers and others and released in the fall of 2014 for public review and comment. From December 2014 through January 2015, teams of reviewers convened by the state’s Education Oversight Committee (EOC) and the state Department of Education worked through multiple drafts of the standards. The EOC approved a draft in March 2015, which was then sent to the South Carolina Board of Education for final approval and adoption.
