Elementary and Middle School
The following OUSD curriculum scope and sequence documents were developed over several years, beginning in 2015, by OUSD teacher leaders. These curriculum tools are part of our transition strategy to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which also includes professional development for teachers and site leaders. As high quality, standards-aligned curricula becomes available in the marketplace, OUSD will move forward with curriculum adoption and purchase to support core high school science classes (Biology, Chemistry, and Physics), as OUSD did with the adoption of Elementary FOSS in 2018 and Middle School FOSS in 2019.
Note that some of the units and documents are incomplete and/or not available to teachers outside of Oakland.
