Implementing the Common Core State Standards: State Spotlights

The purpose of this document is to help facilitate ongoing networking between states, districts, educators, and parents. The state spotlights are also intended to be a quick reference document to support the sharing of innovative practices and lessons learned. Examples were chosen based on quality and accessibility of information via the Internet. CCSSO will continue to update this ongoing document and release it to state chiefs and state education agency (SEA) staff.

This document provides an extensive set of resources which SEA, district, and school staff could use to as they develop their communications around college- and career-ready standards (not just Common Core standards). It includes communication toolkits, video examples, podcasts through iTunes University, resources for coordinating for Institutes of Higher Education, diverse learners supports and many more topics. The only caveat is that effectiveness of implementation is unknown at this time.
