Review the new Science Standards and give your feedback. This website will provide you with the opportunity to review and offer feedback on what students should be expected to know by the end of each K-12 school year for science.
The Tennessee State Board of Education is responsible for reviewing academic standards and recent legislation (Public Chapter 423) outlines the process for reviewing standards and builds on the revision work that was already underway for science standards. Initial revisions to science standards were developed by teams of educators from throughout the state during the fall of 2014 and spring of 2015. These initial revisions are the standards you will find posted on this site.
The SBE will work in conjunction with the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) to collect all of the comments submitted to this website. Educator development teams will review the website feedback during the winter of 2015 and make additional revisions. Another draft set of standards will be posted in spring 2016 and an appointed Standards Recommendation Committee will make the ultimate recommendation for new science standards to the State Board of Education in summer 2016.
