The Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) is offering free two-day regional workshops to support science teachers and school district administrators as they transition to new Oklahoma Academic Standards (OAS) for Science.
The new standards were adopted by the State Board of Education and signed into rule by Gov. Fallin this summer. They replace Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) science standards. State science assessments will not be aligned to these new standards, however, until 2016-2017 so that districts and teachers have time to transition.
