• Science in Alameda County 

    The Alameda County Office of Education offers a variety of events and professional learning to help educators and administrators with the implementation of California’s science standards, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Our professional learning services support district wide professional learning needs, strategic planning, curriculum adoption and implementation efforts, integrating science alongside other core curriculum in the elementary grades, and building site and district administrators' capacity for supporting TK-12 science.

    The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were adopted by California in 2013. These standards focus on three equally important dimensions of science. In emphasizing scientific literacy, NGSS not only addresses the three science domains (Earth, Life and Physical) and the content within them, but does so in a way where students use science and engineering practices and cross-cutting ideas to build a more robust understanding of science. If you would like to know more about the Next Generation Science standards, please look at our NGSS Essentials page.
