NGSS District Implementation Indicators

As districts implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), this tool can be valuable to identify signifiers of successful NGSS adoption. This tool identifies 13 important indicators of successful NGSS adoption, broken into three broad categories: foundational strategies, essential strategies, and results. For each indicator, the tool provides examples of actions districts can implement to make progress towards meeting each indicator. District leaders might use this tool to evaluate existing strategies for NGSS adoption or identfied next steps for implementation.
