14 DE Admin. Code 501
A. Type of Regulatory Action Required
The Secretary of Education seeks the consent of the State Board of Education to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 501 State Content Standards to adopt the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as the content standards for science. The NGSS were developed in partnership with 26 states, including Delaware. The timeline for full implementation, including aligned curriculum and assessments, will be developed by the Department. The Department recognizes the need to update the science standards, but is also cognizant of the processes and work needed to ensure the professional development, alignment of curriculum and assessments are done in a structured manner.
Persons wishing to present their views regarding this matter may do so in writing by the close of business on or before September 5, 2013 to Susan Haberstroh, Department of Education, at 401 Federal Street, Suite 2, Dover, Delaware 19901. A copy of this regulation is available from the above address or may be viewed at the Department of Education business office.
1.1.3 Instructional materials and curricula content shall be kept current and consistent with provisions of 14 DE Admin. Code 502 Alignment of Local School District Curricula to the State Content Standards and 14 DE Admin. Code 503 Instructional Program Requirements.
