  3. Overview of Common Core & Essential Standards

  4. Common Core and Essential Standards • As a requirement of RttT, North Carolina must align its curricula with the Common Core State Standards • North Carolina has also revised its curricula for many other subject areas • Implementation of the Common Core State Standards and North Carolina Essential Standards is August 2012.

  5. Why Common Core Standards? • One way we can work to address the disparity between standards is to ensure that all children, regardless of socioeconomic status or life history, receive an education that values their potential.

  6. Characteristics of the Common Core Standards • Fewer and more rigorous. The goal was increased clarity. • Aligned with college and career expectations – prepare all students for success upon graduation from high school. • Internationally benchmarked, so that all students are prepared to compete in our global economy.

  7. Characteristics of Common Core Standards • Includes rigorous content and application of higher-order skills. • Builds on strengths and lessons of current state standards. • Is Research based.

  8. Recent General Assembly Actions

  9. Length of School Year • NC General Assembly lengthens school year by 5 days to a total of 185 days • State Board of Education offered a waiver for the additional five days if they were used for Common Core and Essential Standards professional development • WSFCS applied for the calendar waiver • WSFCS school calendar must reflect days dedicated to CCES professional development

  10. Teacher Workdays • NC law no longer requires a protected teacher workday at the end of each quarter

  12. 5 Days for CCES Professional Development • October 31 and February 20 are already RC days and dedicated to CCES • January 23, March 30 and June 8 will become RC days • NOTE: June 8 may become a student day, so the last RC day may be the first teacher work day after the last student day

  13. How will the RC days be used? • October 31 – 6 hours • January 23 – 6 hours • February 20 – 6 hours • March 30 – will be used in case of snow • June 8 – will be used in case of snow NOTE: If March 30 and June 8 are not needed as RC days, they will revert back to RS days for school use.

  20. Sample Allocation of Seats • 6 Kindergarten sections • 1 Reading • 2 Mathematics • 2 Science • 1 Social Studies

  21. Professional Development for Core Areas • Each teacher-trainer will receive 18 contact hours of professional development in ONE of the core areas • October 31 – 6 hours • January 23 – 6 hours • February 20 – 6 hours • March 30 – will be used in case of snow • June 8 – will be used in case of snow

  22. Return to School…Offer Training • Each school level teacher-trainer will deliver training in the core subject area he/she attended on the RC days using 10 modules developed by Instructional Services • The training modules are expected to take between 6 and 10 hours to deliver

  23. Timeframe to Complete the CCES Professional Development • Start – November 1, 2011 • Completed – December 20, 2012 • Schools complete modules 1 – 5 by June 14, 2012 • Schools complete modules 6 – 10 by December 20, 2012
