Working with partners from the Lead States, the National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Achieve, Inc., Michigan science and engineering educators have developed standards to define the science concepts and content students will need to learn from kindergarten through high school graduation. The development of the new science standards was a collaborative, state-led initiative coordinated by Achieve Inc. The process involved K-12 educators, state science officials, scientists, engineers, business leaders and university faculty members. As a lead state partner in NGSS development, Michigan has played an active role throughout the NGSS review and revision process. The NGSS were released for state adoption on April 9, 2013.
