I know our site is blending the new standards into their current 7/8 curriculum as it is likely the NGSS will be passed soon
Our district in Arkansas is working on understanding the Framework for K-12 Science while looking to the future implementation of NGSS.
California just officially adopted them week so we are at the beginning stages
Like what John said, I can't implement them until California comes up with what we have to teach to each grade level. Once that is done and we have some blueprints, I'm not going to worry about implementation.
On March 6, 2014, our district began committees to determine how it is that we will make this move. We have yet to have our first meeting though! I have begun on my own to implement in my middle school classes. Our county office of education also offered a class that I took and got some good info there, like a lesson planning guide that helps you remember to include college and career, ELA, math practices, etc.
My school has begun implementing NGSS and I am supporting the K teachers with the Physical Science -Forces and Interactions-Pushes and Pulls topic. As we are using the Project- Based Learning approach, we are currently creating materials to create a product that reflects the students' understanding of this topic.
