NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS (NGSS)
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards. Standards set the expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The NGSS were developed by states to improve science education for all students.
A goal for developing the NGSS was to create a set of research-based, up-to-date K–12 science standards. These standards give local educators the flexibility to design classroom learning experiences that stimulate students’ interests in science and prepares them for college, careers, and citizenship.

LANGUAGE ARTS - AMPLIFY
Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA)
Using a fundamentally different approach to language arts, Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts (CKLA) sequences deep content knowledge with research-based foundational skills.
Amplify CKLA inspires curiosity and drives results, empowering all students with rich background knowledge.
EdReports, an independent curriculum review nonprofit, rates curriculum on three gateways: Text Quality, Building Knowledge, and Usability. Amplify CKLA earned a green rating in all three.
MATHEMATICS - EUREKA MATH
Thoughtfully constructed and designed like a story, Eureka Math is meticulously coherent, with an intense focus on key concepts that layer over time, creating enduring knowledge. Students gain a complete body of math knowledge, not just a discrete set of skills. They use the same models and problem-solving methods from grade to grade, so math concepts stay with them, year after year.
Bryson teachers supplement the District's mathematics curriculum, Eureka Math with instructional methodology and/or programs focusing on problem solving and building critical thinking skills such as Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI).
