Guiding District Implementation of Common Core State Standards: Innovation Configuration Maps
Roy, Patricia; Killion, Joellen
Learning Forward (NJ)
Leadership Networks are regional and content-specific networks focused on the preparation of college- and career-ready students. Each network includes teacher leaders, school administrators, central office staff, regional cooperatives, and institutes of higher education. Network members work collaboratively to focus their efforts on regional needs within four areas. These pillars of support for successful implementation of the education reforms are designed to ensure that all of Kentucky's students are college- and career-ready and prepared for their future, as called for in "Unbridled Learning". The four pillars are: (1) Kentucky's Core Academic Standards; (2) Assessment Literacy; (3) Leadership; and (4) Characteristics of Highly Effective Teaching and Learning. Kentucky recommends that each district create and implement strategies to support effective instruction and student learning in each pillar. The District Implementation Innovation Configuration Maps are designed to specify what each central office staff does related to each pillar to support educators in preparing students to be college- and career-ready. The tool provided here is designed to support school districts in Kentucky to understand what their responsibilities are in each of the four pillar areas, to guide them in strengthening and focusing their support to schools and teachers, and to help them assess their efforts.
