As part of the scheduled periodic review of the Maine Learning Results, the Maine Department of Education is seeking public comments regarding the current science standards.
A public meeting is planned in Houlton Wednesday, Feb. 28, from 4-6 p.m. Other hearings will be held in Augusta and Westbrook.
