NCPEA Executive Board Meeting
February 17, 2012
A sea change that is going to require teachers to teach differently.
If teachers are to teach differently, then principals need to lead differently.
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%.
The Three C’s:
Consistent Across Content Areas
"Staircase of Increasing Complexity Across Grades"
College, Workforce Training Expectations
We need to shift our focus from high school completion to college and career readiness for all students.
Implementation is NOW!
2014 - 2015
Participating States Administer New CCSS Assessments
47 States Have Adopted CCSS
"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."

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.
Do you remember when?
Applications were sent to colleges.
Linked-In was a jail.
Skype was a typo.
Twitter was a sound.
4G was a parking spot.

A vertical scale from zero to 2000.
Lexile measures evaluate how complex a text will likely be for a reader to comprehend so that the reader can be matched with texts that best complement his or her unique ability level and reading goals.

Change the way we teach
Depth over Breadth
Know the answer vs. Find the answer
Engagement > MUST
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
Target 2014 – 2015
