Information about the Florida science standards revision process is available at this FloridaSTEM website. There is a video and some downloadable documents there.
The important future fireworks dates to mark on your calendars:
- June 2016 — draft of standards released for public input.
- November 2016 — state board of education considers approval.
It would seem that the sequence of planned events (selection of framers, selection of writers, writers developing draft standards, etc.) makes it clear that the “national” Next Generation Science Standards are not being seriously considered for adoption here in Florida.
