Governor Inslee to make major education announcement at Cascade M.S. near White Center

Governor Jay Inslee, State Superintendent Randy Dorn and invited guests will appear at 12:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 4, at Cascade Middle School where Inslee attended 8th and 9th Grade near White Center to make a major announcement about Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

NGSS are K–12 science standards that have been developed and are arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education. The NGSS is based on the Framework for K–12 Science Education developed by the National Research Council.

Twenty-six states and their broad-based teams worked together with a 41-member writing team and partners throughout the country to develop the standards.
