• The Diocesan Science Curriculum Committee began researching and rewriting the Diocesan K-8 Science Standards five years before the website versions, finalized in 2015, were implemented.
    Based on the Framework for K-12 Science Education, Pennsylvania Standards for Science and Technology, the Next Generation Science Standards, among others, these documents helped guide the committee. The following people were instrumental in the production:
    Karen Iobst
    Danielle Sixsmith
    Cathy Schneible
    Patricia Maskiell
    Paula Krabasz
    Rebecca Piper
    Robert Woodland
    as were many many science teachers throughout the Diocese that participated in surveys, attended feedback forums and workshops, pilot- tested activities and continue to teach these standards to K-8 students throughout the Diocese of Allentown schools.
