Elementary and Middle School

This school year, FOSSWeb for K-8 moved to a new platform - ThinkLink. This transition guarantees you and your students a more stable and reliable FOSSweb access, plus many new site features, without changing how you already teach FOSS.

Please check the ThinkLink page for more information on how to use this platform, and see the grade level pages below for more information on the FOSS curriculum.

High 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.
