Demystifying the Common Core State Standards

Our January Hot Topic event featured Diane Fettrow, award-­winning teacher and former Language Arts supervisor for Broward County Schools, who delivered an engaging and informative presentation about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Assessments aligned to the standards will be implemented in the 2014-2015 school year.
