Public Comment on the Proposed Standards for the Preparation of Middle Grades (5-9) and High School (7-12) Science Teachers
A public comment period is open to provide input on a proposal presented to the State Board of Education (SBE) for the revision and adoption of new standards for the preparation of middle grades (5-9) and high school (7-12) science teachers. These standards are aligned with the Michigan K-12 Science Standards and the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) Teacher Preparation Standards and will guide the preparation of candidates seeking certification and/or endorsement in these fields.
