Common Core Adoption

Current Adoption Stage - Strong adoption
What is your state doing to help schools transition to the Common Core State Standards?
As a result of the increased rigor of the Common Core State Standards, NYSED will be approving and releasing Common Core-aligned curriculum resources, which will be freely available to teachers throughout the state. NYSED will also be facilitating curriculum-based professional development to aid teachers’ implementation of the new standards. Curriculum resources have been available to educators since the summer of 2011 in both ELA and mathematics to provide exemplars on what Common Core-aligned instruction can and should look like in the classroom. By the late summer/fall of 2012, new curriculum modules will be released to educators, and will be accompanied by curriculum-based professional development. By the summer of 2013, educators will have access to a full menu of open-source ELA and mathematics curriculum modules across grades P-12, all of which will be accompanied by curriculum-based professional development.
