Are school districts ready for new Common Core Standards?
Submitted By League of Women Voters Eden Area
Four school district superintendents representing Castro Valley, Hayward, San Leandro and San Lorenzo have been invited to explain how their districts will implement the new Common Core Standards (CCS). They will explain how they are different from the old standards and how the new CCS Assessments will be done.
The luncheon forum will be held on Friday, Oct. 4 at the San Lorenzo Village Homes Assoc. Community Hall, 377 Paseo Grande, San Lorenzo.
This school year, teachers will begin to implement the most significant changes to classroom instruction since California first adopted standards in 1998.Common Core does not dictate curricula, but it sets goals for K-12 classrooms that emphasize depth over breadth, according to Ed Source.
The luncheon forum is sponsored by the League of Women Voters Eden Area and the American Assoc. of University Women Hayward/Castro Valley Branch.
The cost of the luncheon is $12, payable to LWVEA and mailed to LWVEA Treasurer, P. O Box 2234, Castro Valley, CA 94546. There is no charge for those who wish to attend the program without lunch. RSVPs are required with or without lunch. Contact Suzanne Barba at (510) 538-9678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
