School board to discuss science standards, recognize Teachers of the Year

Also: Second interim financial report, full and fair funding of California schools

The San Ramon Valley school board is set to hear a presentation on science standards and recognize some of the district’s exemplary teachers Tuesday night.

The Next Generation Science Standards are K-12 standards that have been developed by states in an effort to improve science education for all students.

And the educators recognized by the district as Teachers of the Year will then go on to represent SRVUSD in the county’s Teacher of the Year competition later this year.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the district complex, 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.
