Issue Brief -
Common Core Implementation


Forty-five states, four territories, the District of Columbia and DoDEA are currently transitioning to full implementation of the Common Core State Standards. While some groups are further along than others, educators across the country are seeking high quality resources to facilitate this process.

In this month’s issue brief, we explore resources and information designed to support Common Core implementation. We're interested in hearing about the resources, websites and tools that you have found to be most useful during this transition. Please respond to our call for commentary. We'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for all you do to support and inspire great educators and engaging education.
