COMMON CORE STANDARDS PARTNER DISTRICTS PROJECT

UT PARTNER DISTRICTS Common Core State Standards (CCSS) ALIGNMENT PROJECT

Partner Districts: Carbon Cliff/Barstow SD #36, Colona SD #190, East Moline SD #37, Hampton SD #29, Silvis School Distrit #34, United Township High School #30

Purpose: To collaborate on the transition to and implementation of the CCSS; to improve the horizontal and vertical alignment between and among the Partner Districts through the implementation of the CCSS.

Narrative: In June, 2010 the ISBE adopted new Math and English Language Arts standards for K?12 education known as the New Illinois State Learning Standards Incorporating the Common Core. Understanding that United Township High School was required to implement the CCSS immediately, it is essential that the elementary district move to the CCSS as soon as possible in order for students to be successful at UTHS. Furthermore, the 11-12 Kindergarten students will be the first students to take the new CCSS-based State assessment which will replace ISAT* in 2014-2015. Therefore, UTHS and the five elementary districts that feed into it have joined together to develop and implement a common plan for transitioning to the CCSS.

On June 27 – 30, representatives from all grade-levels and districts met to analyze the CCSS, compare them to the old Illinois Achievement Standards, and identify where the biggest curricular shifts occur. Once the major changes in curriculum were exposed, the group identified the CCSS standards that would give the biggest traction on the transition to new CCSS. That set of standards – which came to be called the STAR STANDARDS – will be the CCSS focus for 2011-2012. All districts committed to implementing the STAR STANDARDS next year, with several district opting to go beyond and implement all the CCSS standards. 

The Partner Districts wish to thank Eagle Ridge School for so graciously hosting the event.
