4 Remember eight points

5 Point #1: Common Core State Standards Solve Three Specific Problems

6 Problem #1: Increased Skills Demand and Competition

7 Source: Carnevale, Anthony P. et al. (June 2010). Help Wanted: Projections of Jobs and Education Requirements Through Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce. ww9.georgetown.edu/grad/gppi/hpi/cew/pdfs/FullReport.pdf Jobs in Today’s (and Tomorrow’s) Workforce Require More Education and Training

8 8 Sources: Carnevale, Anthony P. and Donna Desrochers (2003). Standards for What? The Economic Roots of K-12 Reform. Education Testing Services. ; Skills to Compete. National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, analysis of 2009 American Community Survey. In 1950, 60% of jobs were classified as unskilled, attainable by young people with high school diplomas or less. Today, less than 20% of jobs are considered to be unskilled.

9 9 Sources: Carnevale, Anthony P. and Donna Desrochers (2003). Standards for What? The Economic Roots of K-12 Reform. 83% of New Hampshire’s jobs are middle- or high-skill (jobs that require some postsecondary education or training). Between 2008 and 2018, new jobs in New Hampshire requiring postsecondary education and training will grow by 53,000 while jobs for high school graduates and dropouts will grow by 22,000.

10 10 Sources: Carnevale, Anthony P. and Donna Desrochers (2003). Between 2008 and 2018, New Hampshire will create 223,000 job vacancies both from new jobs and from job openings due to retirement. 141,000 of these job vacancies will be for those with postsecondary credentials, 67,000 for high school graduates and 15,000 for high school dropouts.

11 11 Sources: Carnevale, Anthony P. and Donna Desrochers (2003). New Hampshire ranks 7th in terms of the proportion of its 2018 jobs that will require a Bachelor’s degree, and is 45th in jobs for high school dropouts. 64% of all jobs in New Hampshire (486,000 jobs) will require some postsecondary training beyond high school in 2018.

15 Problem #2: Students Not College/Career Ready

16 Over 40% of employers rate new entrants out of high school as “deficient” (based on an assessment of 21 st century skills: work ethic, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking) in their for the entry- level jobs they typically fill. Source: Are they ready to work? Employers’ perspectives on the basic knowledge and applied skills of new entrants to the 21 st century U.S. workforce.

27 Point #1: Common Core State Standards Solve Three Specific Problems Increased competition Students not prepared Need for consistency

28 Point #2: Common Core State Standards Are Not A Federal Mandate

34 State-led Broad support

35 Point #3: Common Core State Standards Are Fewer, Clearer, and Higher

36 Criteria for New Standards Fewer, clearer, and higher (Consistent, rigorous, and shared aligned with college and work expectations) Aligned with college and work expectations Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards (think DNA of education) Internationally benchmarked, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society Based on evidence and research

37 English Language Arts and Literacy Focus and coherence – Coherent progressions develop literacy skills across grade levels Focus on text complexity – Students required to read texts of increasing complexity College and career readiness in writing – Students required to write using evidence from informational reading. Literacy as a shared responsibility – Literacy skills in reading and writing included in history/social studies, science, and technical areas

38 Mathematics Focus and coherence – Focus on key topics t each grade level. – Coherent progressions across grade levels. Balance of concepts and skills – Content standards require both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. Mathematic practices – Foster reasoning and sense making in mathematics. College and career readiness – Level is ambitious but achievable.

39 Format is Similar to NH

44 57%

45 Point #3: Common Core State Standards Are Fewer, Clearer, and Higher. Text increases in complexity. Math standards are more coherent (fewer topics)

46 Point #4: Achieving on CCSS would significantly change our international standing.

47 Current U.S. Performance College and Career Readiness Standards College and Career Readiness in Mathematics Increased readiness of students meeting College and Career Benchmark

48 Internationally Competitive 7 th Estimated U.S. rank on PISA if students all students were college and career ready Source: ACT, Affirming the Goal

49 Point #4: Achieving on CCSS would significantly change our international standing.

50 Point #5: Districts in New Hampshire are fully adopting.

51 NH Districts: Phase in Implementation (n=64)

52 Support Suggestions Guidance on what to expect (e.g. timelines and transition) – “Give clear direction of the NECAP testing or National testing timeline.” Crosswalk between NECAP and CCSS – “Is there a side by side for the CCSS and NHDOE framework yet?” Professional Development – “Continue to offer professional development opportunities for implementation of CCSS in all areas.” Policy Support

53 Point #5: Districts in New Hampshire are fully adopting.

54 Point #6: The target date for full implementation is Fall 2013*.

55 NH Standards for ELA and Math Teach NH Curriculum Frameworks for ELA and Math Begin to seriously map the grade level differences between NH and CCSS to plan for SY13-14 First full year for new standards to be used in classrooms Common Core fully implemented Common Core for ELA and Math Continue Review, using NH Toolkit – Begin implementatio n of K-2 standards. Begin to seriously map the grade level differences between NH and CCSS to plan for SY NECAP in Reading, Math, and Writing NECAP (fall) Smarter Balanced Assessment (spring) NECAP in ScienceNECAP (fall)

56 Fall 2013: Some changes to Math NECAP.

57 Point #6: The target date for full implementation is Fall 2013*. Current KG and 9 th graders will take SBA. Changes in Fall 2013

58 Point #7: Resources are available to support implementation.
