CCSSO believes it is incumbent on states to set high expectations for student success by creating opportunities and removing barriers for all learners, particularly those traditionally underserved students. The Science SCASS is working toward this vision by leveraging and building its state members’ collective expertise to create change within and across states to support effective science teaching and learning for all students.The Science collaborative is composed of Science Assessment staff within state education agencies.


2019-2020 Goals:

-Learn from experts and researchers in the field as well as other state teams to better connect state efforts to support educators and the implementation of high standards in the classroom;

-Offer opportunities for professional learning guided by nationally recognized experts in science education, standards implementation, instruction, and assessment;

-Build on current efforts to explicitly leverage state initiatives and policies to better support equity in science education.
