The goal of the Science program is to provide curriculum leadership and instructional support for the development of scientific literacy to impact student achievement and promote lifelong learning.  In doing so, we aim to improve the teaching and learning in science so that all students are ensured an equitable standards-based education; implement development opportunities for every teacher of science, which is designed to enhance performance and produce systemic reform; and promote parental involvement through community awareness of all stake holders in scientific education.

 The Science Scope and Sequence provides a frame for common learning experiences across the district.  It outlines student expectations aligned to the Florida Standards. The Curriculum Blueprints for each unit are hyperlinked within the Scope and Sequence, and are meant to be used as a starting point for collaborative unit planning.
