NGSS Alignment Claims: What Publishers Are Saying

Achieve has just posted on their website, NGSS Alignment Claims:  What Publishers are Saying, which will help you sort through and be aware of the many claims currently being made by publishers regarding their instructional materials alignment to NGSS.

Keep in mind that K-8 instructional materials adoption by the California Department of Education (CDE) will not happen until November 2018, after which districts will assemble their teams to review materials and make their adoption recommendations to their local Boards.

So, realistically, NGSS-aligned and state board approved materials will not be available in classrooms until after January 2019.

For your reference, here is the CDE adoption process schedule:

Instructional Materials Samples Due May 4, 2018
Independent Review May-July 2018
Reviewer Deliberations July 16-20, 2018
IQC holds public meeting to receive comment August 13, 2018
IQC makes recommendation September 20-21, 2018
SBE holds public hearing to receive comment November 8-9, 2018
SBE takes action on recommendation November 8-9, 2018
