This resource is of high quality in its provision of materials for education leaders to communicate with various stakeholders about Common Core State Standards (CCSS) implementation. Their messages are communicated well through various media, including video, sample letters, and reports. It is of high utility in that it addresses a relevant and important need in states that have adopted CCSS. The resource has the potential to be effective in creating positive outcomes through facilitating productive communication between all education stakeholders in CCSS-adopted states on issues related to implementation.
