Organization Profiles

In preparation for the 2015 Summit, institutions and organizations were asked to profile the kinds of resources they had that could be of use in helping implement the Earth and space science part of the NGSS. Remembering that the NGSS-ESS consists of 3 main sections: Earth's Place in the Universe, Earth's Systems, & Earth and Human Activity, organizations provided information about their resources in several topical areas. To browse through resources for a particular topical area, click on the relevant term in the listing at the right side of the page.

At present, only Summit participants can view the full profiles for each organization. We will be working with the participants to finish and publish their profiles publicly.

If you would like to profile your organization's resources for helping to implement the NGSS, fill out this information form to generate your profile.

Council of State Science Supervisors
CSSS is the only professional science organization whose members have direct accountability to the government agencies given the constitutional authority for education. Within their own jurisdictions, each of these supervisors plays a key role in directing effort at improving school science and to ensure excellence and equity in science education. CSSS can offer state and national organizations a direct science education link to every school building in their state or territory. These science supervisors can provide information on the types of science programs their schools are using and how well each of the programs are working in their state. Most of the members serve on the state science teacher's organizational boards and are on a first name basis with their leaders. The Council members are proactive change agents in science for their state. Their responsibilities link the Council members by leadership and service to a broad constituency.
