Achieve, in partnership with College Summit, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), has released a series of action briefs on the role of school counselors, secondary school leaders, and elementary school leaders in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

"There's a lot of energy around the Common Core State Standards right now, but the hard work will be in their implementation in schools," said NASSP Executive Director JoAnn Bartoletti. "Given the cross-disciplinary nature of the standards, the success of their implementation will rely on focused, well-informed principal leadership. These guides will be essential tools as principals work with teachers and parents."

The action briefs provide no-cost takeaways, talking points, and action steps that school leaders and counselors can begin to put into practice in their schools today.


The three released action briefs are:

  • Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the Elementary School Leader Action Brief,
  • Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the Secondary School Leader Action Brief, and
  • Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the School Counselor Action Brief.

All are available at no charge in the Publications section at www.achieve.org.
