Four Lafayette teachers presented to colleagues this week on the Lafayette School District's transition to the state's common core standards.
The San Francisco-Bay Area Common Core State Standards Summit, produced by the Contra Costa County Office of Education, was held on Oct. 29-30, at the Concord Hilton. Nearly 400 attendees from across the Bay Area and the state of California were on hand, the county Office of Education reported.
“With the implementation of the Common Core, educators will work collaboratively to implement curriculum, assessment, and ongoing professional development," stated Joseph A. Ovick, superintendent of schools for Contra Costa County, in a news release. "Our goal is to support districts as they build capacity at all levels to support teachers, students, and school communities. The Common Core provides a means for all students to be college and career ready and to thrive in the 21st century workforce.”
