Science Assessment


Science offices at OSPI provide guidance for the development and implementation of Washington learning standards and oversee assessments required by federal and state laws and regulations.

Outdoor Education for All Program

The Washington State Legislature funded the House Bill (HB) 2078, Outdoor Learning Grants Program with the goal to develop and support outdoor educational experiences for students in Washington public schools.

Learning Standards

The state's K-12 Science Learning Standards describe what students should know and be able to do at each grade band.


The ClimeTime initiative provides grants to professional learning partners who train science teachers to use the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), specifically the climate science learning standards.
