After months of work and review, the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction has released the first draft of the revised K-12 Science Standards - and they are looking for feedback.
Help ensure that environmental education is a strong part of our state’s science curriculum by sharing your feedback. Complete the 2023 Draft #1 K-12 Science Standards All Stakeholder Survey by December 18, 2022.
Consider your breadth and depth of knowledge when getting ready to do this survey. If you’re most familiar with a single grade, you can probably complete this survey in 15-30 minutes. If you have a breadth of knowledge spanning K-12 science, plan to allocate more time.
To help you prepare, EENC has compiled a survey preview of all the draft standards.
During this survey, you’ll review one grade level at a time, but can review as many grades as you would like all within a single survey entry.
Be as specific as possible in your comments.
Consider planning a meeting with your team to discuss your review as a group. But be sure that each person on your team enters their own responses to the survey!
EENC is co-hosting a network-wide working session on December 13 to discuss these standards .Read the original announcement from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction
