Welcome! Agenda for today’s webinar… Current big picture updates of the of the Common Core State Standards Initiative State transition plans, resources for various audiences, emerging resources Assessment system update A glimpse into next week’s ELA and Math webinars January 17, 3:30 – Mathematics January 19, 3:30 – English language arts Address questions and discuss next steps January 2012CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update3
But First…About You We’d like to know a little about who is out there. Time for a poll. January 2012CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update4
Washington’s Vision for Education Every Washington public school student will graduate from high school globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21 st century. 5 Class of 2011: Bridgeport High School January 2012
Implementing the Common Core State Standards in Washington State January 2012CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update6 Our Vision: Every student will have access to the CCSS standards through high quality instruction aligned with the standards every day; and that all English language arts and mathematics teachers are prepared and receive the support they need to implement the standards in their classrooms every day. Our Purpose: To develop a statewide system with aligned resources that supports all school districts in their preparation of educators and students to implement the CCSS. Our Core Values: This vision can only occur through core values of clarity, consistency, collaboration, coordination, and commitment from classrooms, schools, and communities to the state level.
What’s Different: Implementation Considerations January 2012CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update7 Changing roles of education partners State Regional Local Current / waning capacities State Regional Local Tapping into and building statewide expertise Emerging opportunities
What’s New: Implementation Partnerships – To name a few… January 2012CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update8 PLUS… Large School Districts Higher Education Statewide Education and Content Associations Washington
Focusing on the foundation… Washington’s Implementation Timeline & Activities Phase 1: CCSS Exploration Phase 2: Build Awareness & Begin Building Statewide Capacity Phase 3: Build Statewide Capacity and Classroom Transitions Phase 4: Statewide Application and Assessment Ongoing: Statewide Coordination and Collaboration to Support Implementation CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update9January 2012
