The Council of Great City Schools has created several Public Service Announcements around the Common Core. Described as an explanation of the CCSS, the videos are an approachable way to give parents and community member’s context for why the CCSS were crafted and the implications for our students. You can find all of the videos here in both English and Spanish.
The videos were recently highlighted in Smarter News, an SBAC newsletter to help stakeholders transition to the coming 204-2015 assessments. The current issue also includes updates on the practice test, current work in the field, and answers to “frequently asked questions.”
