Common Core State Standards

A sea change that is going to require teachers to teach differently.

If teachers are to teach differently, then principals need to lead differently.

what is the common core ccss
What is the Common Core (CCSS)?
  • A state-led effort to develop a common set of standards in English language arts (ELA) and math that:
    • Align college and workplace expectations
    • Are rigorous and evidence-based
  • The CCSS have been adopted by 46 states
  • The CCSS will affect all public schools in adopted states
    • Implementation beginning now
    • New state assessments in 2014-15
  • A parallel effort is underway to develop Next Generation Science Standards that will be released by December 2012

the ccss initiative
The CCSS Initiative

National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) convened a state-led process in 2009 to develop common ELA and Math standards.

By joining the CCSS Initiative, governors and state commissioners are committing to join the state-led process.

There has been increased congressional support for the CCSS (not national standards).

The CCSSO and NGA joined with 49 states and territories to develop them.

Partnership was also formed with Achieve, ACT and the College Board.

States can include additional standards beyond the CCSS as long as the CCSS represent at least 85%.

common core major change and mindset shift
Common Core = Major Change and Mindset Shift

We need to shift our focus from high school completion to college and career readiness for all students.

  • The Common Core State Standards:
    • Are for all students, not just students seeking accelerated learning.
    • Will impact all teachers, not just ELA and math teachers.
    • Is happening now.
  • School level leaders will need to play a central role in implementing the new standards and in cultivating this mindset shift.

"There will always be change — new jobs, new products, new services. But the one thing we know for sure is that with each advance in globalization and the I.T. revolution, the best jobs will require workers to have more and better education to make themselves above average."

the reality of practice
The Reality of Practice

Accountability for principals is unlike any other profession.

Whether a principal’s first day or their 10th year the level of accountability is the same.

Physicians, lawyers, architects – when starting their professional practice – get mentors. Principals get tormentors.

Why Common Core State Standards?Low College Completion Rates
  • Remediation rates and costs are staggering
  • As much as 40% of all students entering 4-year colleges need remediation in one or more courses
  • As much as 63% in 2-year colleges
  • Degree attainment rates are disappointing
  • Fewer than 42% of adults aged 25-34 hold college degrees

common assessments
Common Assessments

Two state consortia are building assessment systems to measure the Common Core State Standards.

The assessments systems will:

Provide a common measure of college and career readiness

Be computer-based and include innovative item types

Measure higher order skills and application of knowledge through multiple assessment formats

Include formative assessments and performance tasks

Provide timely data to educators and parents

Ensure comparable expectations regardless of where students live
