TSTA Educators of the Year Announced
The 2016 Awardees
Lisa Elder for K-4th
NSTA invites you to join the Every Student Succeeds with STEM campaign to ensure that STEM education is a priority in the new federal education law, ESSA. As you know, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) became law in late 2015, when President Obama signed the bipartisan reauthorization of the national education law and replaced No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
ESSA provides states and local districts with the flexibility and power to set new policy and funding priorities. Every state is now developing a new plan to submit to the U.S. Department of Education detailing how they will implement ESSA.
You have the power to impact your state's plan by promoting STEM as a critical piece of a well-rounded education. Here are three easy steps you can take today:

|2018-2019 Standards Implementation|
New Tennessee State Science Standards will be implemented in 2018-2019. On July 22, 2016 Laura Encalade, State Board of Education (SBOE), presented the science standards for first reading at the SBOE meeting. The standards were passed on First Reading. If passed on Second reading, October 14, 2016, this set of standards will be implemented according to the following timeline. Consider attending the TSTA Conference December 1-3, 2016 to hear about the new science standards. As a TSTA participant you will have opportunities to hear about changes that have been made.
