The Rhode Island Department of Education is proud to have been a Lead State Partner in the development of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). These Next Generation Science Standards were developed through collaboration between states and other stakeholders in science, science education, higher education, and industry. Working as a Lead State, RI provided leadership and input to the writers of the NGSS as the standards moved through the development process.
