Council of State Science Supervisors
“The voice and vision of science education for the states”

The second gathering of BCSSE was in Raleigh, NC. The sessions are designed to support state teams building capacity for valuing and using the Framework and NGSS Standards.  Goals for the meeting included: developing and/or enhancing state science education plans, networking, discussion, and planning at many levels to develop a shared vision for science education, and developing, planning, and sharing resources and tools to support implementation of the Framework’s vision for science education.
