This website was created by Achieve in 2013 to support public communications, tools and resources for educators and leaders putting the NGSS into practice. In April 2020, the Achieve science team launched NextGenScience, now housed at WestEd, to support educators with the implementation of rigorous science standards across the nation. 

NextGenScience serves as the steward of the NGSS and standards based on A Framework for K-12 Science Education through the dissemination of free and publicly available resources on and @OfficialNGSS as well as through implementation support to states, districts, and educators.
