Common Core Implementation in California: A Snapshot of Districts' Progress. CenterView
Center for the Future of Teaching and Learning at WestEd
It has been six years since California adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). District leaders have been busy building capacity and developing infrastructure to support effective CCSS implementation, while teachers have been working hard to implement standards-aligned instruction that supports academic success for all students. In a state as vast and varied as California, what exactly does CCSS implementation look like, and what sort of progress are districts making? This issue of "CenterView" is the first in a special three-part series that describes the insights California district leaders have to offer about California standards implementation. To get an accurate snapshot of where California districts are in their standards implementation, the Center for the Future of Teaching & Learning (CFTL) at WestEd interviewed superintendents and instructional leaders from 42 districts and charter school management organizations from urban, suburban, and rural areas across the state. This report discusses the internal capacity districts have built over time to support CCSS implementation, teacher proficiency in CCSS-aligned instruction, how district leaders select CCSS-aligned curricula, the use of combinations of funding sources to support their particular CCSS implementation expenses, and the need for new kinds of support.
