2016 Science FrameworkThe curriculum framework was adopted by the State Board of Education on November 3, 2016. This is the final published version.
The California Department of Education is committed to making its educational materials accessible to all.
This 2016 Science Framework for California Public Schools has been designed to be accessible to assistive technologies that are often used by persons with disabilities. Most of the framework is compliant with federal Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (as amended).
A few components could not be altered to be compliant without changing the intent and functionality of the original document as approved by the California State Board of Education. Where possible, mitigating features or content have been added to improve accessibility to noncompliant components. Any person having difficulty in accessing the 2016 Science Framework for California Public Schools is encouraged to contact Curriculum Frameworks and Instructional Resources Division at CFIRD@cde.ca.gov or 916-319-0453 to make an American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodation request.
