District 52 is in the process of aligning our Science Curriculum and Instruction to the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). In the 2017-18 school year we have implemented the NGSS in Grades 2-8. In Grades 2-5 we are using the Mystery Science curriculum. K-1 teachers will be implementing the new Science Standards in 2018-19. Students in Grades 5 and 8 take the IL Science Assessment (ISA) in the Spring each year. This replaces the former ISAT Science Test in Grades 4 and 7.
