STEM Professional Development

Administrators and teachers can receive timely professional learning to help develop understanding of and shift instruction to meet the state’s new science learning standards.

Professional learning is available for:

  • New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) awareness sessions for K-12 practitioners
  • Models of 3-dimensional learning
  • Science and engineering practices
  • Literacy practices for science content
  • Performance-based assessments
  • Evaluation of curriculum and resources aligned to the new standards

The standards were adopted by the Board of Regents in December 2016, and implementation will occur over a number of years.
