The Science Education Council of Ohio (SECO) is a collaborative community that believes everyone deserves the benefit of a strong science education in order to engage with an ever-changing world.  

The Ohio Legislature will soon be receiving the newly revised Ohio Learning Standards for Science for their approval.With the recent elections, we have had several new legislators elected to represent the people of Ohio.  Want to reach out to your local legislator in support of our newly revised standards? Unsure of who your local representatives/senators are? Please click here to find your legislator and share your support of the revised standards with them.  

Thank you for your support!

Revised Science Standards are available on ODE site!!!

The revised standards can be found as PDF files (as “Revised 2018” to distinguish them from the original 2010 standards) on the ODE web site at: Science:
