Dear Science Educator,

The Science Georgia Performance Standards have been reviewed and revised over the last several months.  Many of you may have participated in this process by completing one of the stakeholder surveys or by serving on one of the revision committees.  Today marks the beginning of a 60-day public review period of the draft K-12 Science Georgia Standards of Excellence, and we encourage you to review the draft and provide feedback via a brief survey.  To ensure that you receive important information throughout the revision process and beyond, please consider signing up for one or more of the email lists below:

Science K-5

Science 6-8

Science 9-12

Please help us reach as many of Georgia’s science teachers as possible by forwarding this to others in your school and/or district.

Thank you!
