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.
