Science offices at OSPI provide guidance for the development and implementation of Washington learning standards and oversee assessments required by federal and state laws and regulations.

Learning Standards
The state's K-12 Science Learning Standards describe what students should know and be able to do at each grade band.

Assessments are designed to help districts, schools, teachers, parents, and students determine the level of proficiency of a student's understanding of the science learning standards.

Mathematics and Science Partnerships
Federal funding for MSPs is provided through the No Child Left Behind Act. These partnerships improve the content knowledge of mathematics and/or science teachers in order to increase the achievement of their students.
