All aspects of K - 12 science programs must be aligned with the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations and the Michigan Merit Curriculum. Expectations should be implemented within and across grade levels to meet or exceed the standards and expectations. It is anticipated that the Michigan Department of Education will soon be adopting a new set of the standards, "The Michigan Science Standards," which will be based on the Next Generation Science Standards.
