This is a critical time in K-12 science education, as the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) moves forward with the adoption of the revised MA Science and Technology/Engineering (STE) standards. Districts and schools will be working to adjust programs and curriculum to reflect key changes in student expectations, particularly in regard to the inclusion of science and engineering practices, a focus on college and career readiness, and coherent progressions of learning across years. To support districts during this transition, ESE is bringing together a number of partners to support districts in developing implementation plans, sharing resources and curriculum that results in student learning called for in the revised STE standards. This panel discussion is targeted at K-12 educators, administrators, and policymakers, and aims to inform conversation about the rollout, adoption, and implementation of the revised MA STE standards. Panel members, including representatives from WGBH, the Museum of Science, Boston, and district leadership, will discuss strategies and initiatives already underway, how that is coordinated with ESE and other stakeholders, and what will be needed in future years.
