Implementing the Common Core State Standards in Washington State
Our Vision: Every student will have access to the CCSS standards through high quality instruction aligned with the standards every day; and that all English language arts and mathematics teachers are prepared and receive the support they need to implement the standards in their classrooms every day.
Our Purpose: To develop a statewide system with aligned resources that supports all school districts in their preparation of educators and students to implement the CCSS.
This includes building system-wide capacity for sustained professional learning that can:
1. Support CCSS implementation now, and,
2. Be applied to other initiatives in the future.
Our Core Values: This vision can only occur through core values of clarity, consistency, collaboration, coordination, and commitment from classrooms, schools, and communities to the state level.
