Take a Science Survey

Major changes are happening in how K-12 students in California are taught science. California State PTA is developing resources to help families understand what’s changing and what to expect as the new science standards are rolled out in local schools. Your input is essential so we make sure we know what parents need.

Please take a few minutes to participate in our survey by clicking here by July 20.

If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to email

Speak up now for PAUSD students! Take action with a fast click of a button. Your voice needed to advance 3 critical CA education bills:
  • Increase funding for K-12 education (AB 2808). CA schools are funded far below national average (cost-of-living adjusted)
  • Pupil suicide prevention and training (AB 2639, Asm Berman)
  •  Invest in Pre-K education (AB 1754). Every dollar invested in early education saves CA many, many more dollars later
