Massachusetts adopted new science standards in April of 2016. Those new standards are expected to begin the implementation process this coming school year. The Tri-town Science Committee has been working over the past three years to help prepare for this implementation. They researched programs, viewed sales presentations, piloted programs and then after much analysis and discussion, decided that the McGraw Hill program is the best fit for us. Ispire Science by McGraw Hill will be used in grades K-5 beginning in 2017-18. I Science will be used in Grade 6.
