​​​​The San Diego County Office of Education Science Department offers a variety of events and professional learning opportunities to help educators learn about and deepen their understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), plan science instruction, develop assessments, and evaluate materials for alignment to the new standards. These services are designed to support and build capacity of districts and schools implementing the NGSS.​
