The New York State Education Department Office of Standards and Instruction provides guidance for the development and implementation of New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards. The purpose of this New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards Implementation Roadmap is to serve as an at-a-glance guide for all stakeholder groups to facilitate attainment of the Statewide Strategic Plan for Science. This site is designed to assist in implementation of the current and the transition to the new science standards. Resources can be adapted by stakeholders at the local, regional, and state levels.
Here are some quick links to newly released science guidance and resources.
