Implementing the Common Core State Standards: The Role of the Secondary School Leader
The purpose of this Action Brief for secondary leaders is to help them implement the new standards in their schools. The brief is designed to increase awareness of the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), create a sense of urgency around their implementation, and provide these stakeholders with a deeper understanding of the standards. The brief has introductory text on the standards, and the majority of the document about implementation of the CCSS. The text on implementing the CCSS is organized by 12 areas of school-wide change (e.g., culture, content instruction, instructional time, assessment, etc.).
