The new Common Core State Standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that will better prepare our young people for success and relevance in college and careers. The new Standards – and new assessments to measure achievement – are driving substantial changes in curriculum and instructional practices to better address the demands placed on our students as the move into college and the global workplace.

Please join us in this 60 minute session where we’ll discuss the impact of these new Standards on every school district adopting CCSS and how one school system has already made substantial changes to better prepare their faculty and students for success.
