Vision Into Practice

Dive Into Ohio's Standards and Model Curriculum for Science

A Three-Day Series

The Science Standards Series consists of three one-day sessions with information provided by ODE. Participants will attend all three. The sessions are spaced to allow participants to discuss and apply ideas from each session.

Districts are encouraged to send teams to facilitate department planning. Individual participants will have an opportunity for support with their individual planning.
