2016 Standards Revision

2016 Standards Revision

Beginning in December 2015, the standards for Family and Consumer Sciences have undergone major changes. These changes include course standard edits, brand new courses, and Programs of Study that align to careers in Family and Consumer Sciences. These changes were approved by the Nebraska Board of Education in November and over the next several months, the migration of these standards from “draft” to “official” will take place.

While not all course numbers are official at this point, the course titles are. This information will be updated as it becomes available.

The following are the approved Programs of Study related to Family and Consumer Sciences and Education and Training for the 2017-2018 year.
