New high school science pathways

For the past few years, changes to high school science classes have been in the works in order to meet the state’s new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Last year, our district’s science department chairs and teachers discussed what science courses to offer in all high schools to meet the new standards. Science graduation requirements are not changing; students will still need two years of science to graduate. However, if students would like to be exposed to all the science standards to support their college and career readiness, there will be two 3-year pathways they can take. For more information, see the Science: NGSS page.
