The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards. Standards set the expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The NGSS were developed by states including West Virginia to improve science education for all students.

WV Science Teachers follow the the WVDE Content Standards and Objectives (CSO's) which are built on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Learn more about NGSS here.

You can find the WV CSO's here.

WVSTA has put together a comprehensive document to assist teachers in connecting the  WVDE Content Standards and Objectives with the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core Literacy Standards.
