Lane ESD provides curriculum, instruction, and assessment support for science to Lane County schools. Lane ESD tailors professional development around aligning and articulating curriculum to address the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Lane ESD supports the implementation of the NGSS through ESD workshops, school site consultation, classroom coaching, and grant partnerships. Professional learning around the NGSS is hosted at the ESD and can also be scheduled at districts or schools. One to two-hour sessions on the NGSS are available for districts and school site presentations. Contact Bob Curtis to tailor site visits to school and teacher needs.
Current workshops and topics for site visits can be found on the Workshops & Training schedule.
