The DOT and the DOD also announced the signing of the charter for the Interagency GPS Executive Board (IGEB). The agreement was signed by Secretary of Defense William Cohen and Secretary of Transportation Federico Pena before he left office. This board, established by the President's GPS Policy, will provide interagency management of the GPS and U.S. government augmentations to the GPS, and policy guidance for U.S. efforts to assure global acceptance of GPS technology.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
