  • Align Science units of study and lesson plans to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), with assessments to monitor student growth and achievement
  • Offer applied opportunities for students to synthesize math and science concepts in Engineering and Technology, further aligning with NGSS.
  • Offer STEM co-curricular, extra-curricular and summer enhancement opportunities for students focused on both need and benefit.

2. Use data to monitor individual student growth and achievement to identify need for academic interventions and enrichments as early as possible.
