K-12 Science Academic Standards

The Minnesota Department of Education has begun the formal rulemaking process for the Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in Science. The Request for Comments was published in the State Register on Monday, July 29, 2019. The Dual Notice of Adoption was published on Monday, May 17, 2021. The department did not receive the required number of hearing requests so the virtual hearing scheduled for July 23, 2021, has been canceled. The proposed rule language is also posted on this page. For more information on the work of the science standards committee and the review process, visit the K-12 Academic Standards in Science webpage
