On January 10, USBE approved to begin the 90-Day Public Review period of the Draft Science Education Core Standards for grades K-5 and High School.

During this time, all members of the public are invited to carefully review the standards and utilize one or both of the following options to provide feedback with an online survey or during public hearings.

Feedback Option 1: Public Review Survey

During all 90-days of the public review period there is an online survey that will allow the public to provide specific feedback to each strand of each grade of the standards individually. The survey is also set up to allow users to provide feedback to only one grade or one strand within one grade if desired. This online survey is scheduled to close on April 11, 2019 at 11:45 p.m.
