What are the Nevada Academic Content Standards for Science?

The Nevada Academic Content Standards for Science (NVACSS), based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), were officially adopted in February of 2014.  They can be found on the Nevada Department of Education's website AND since the NVACSS are the same as NGSS, you can also use the official NGSS website to find and sort the standards as well!
