Intended for district-level administrators and state education policymakers, this evaluation report describes lessons learned as a cohort of California school districts develops and uses master plans for NGSS implementation.
The report covers:
- The benefits of developing an NGSS implementation plan
- The processes used to develop plan components
- Recommendations for developing plans
