    Common Core Standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs. This academy will give administrators the tools they need to lead the implementation of the Common Core Standards in their schools, from understanding the standards, to being able to implement them into their curricular framework. They will learn how to identify whether student assessments are aligned to Common Core Standards. 


    • Participants will know resources available that support the implementation of Common Core Standards.
    • Participants will have a deep understanding of the Common Core Standards, including how they are designed to “spiral up” to college and career readiness standards, with clear understanding of what student will know and be able to do at every level.
    • Participants will understand various organizational features of the Common Core Standards, what makes this an integrated system, and its impact on student achievement, which will enable them to lead implementation of these standards in a meaningful way.
    • Participants will know how to determine whether student assessment tasks designed by teachers are aligned with Common Core Standards.
