Montana adopts new science standards

The Montana Board of Public Education adopted new science standards for public school students Friday at a meeting in Bozeman.

The standards have benchmarks for what students are supposed to learn at certain grade levels. They don’t dictate how teachers get students there, as local districts have control over their curriculum.

The new guidelines resemble the Next Generation Science Standards, which were developed by a 26-state group in 2013 and are considered by many to be more rigorous than most previously instituted standards.
