Leadership Session: Maintaining the Momentum for Full Implementation of Common Core - An Administrators' Perspective

CCSS has been out since 2010, but the high stakes assessment is still in flux. Curriculum is still in question in many districts.

As supervisors, our teachers and our colleagues look to us for direction in this new era. What are the policies and structures that we can put in place to support the work of the classroom teacher? Although there is no silver bullet, together, we can find solutions to the most challenging issues.

Come join the discussion on how, as leaders, we can continue to move a staff forward in these times of change.

Tips and strategies will be shared by two site administrators.
