While the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) represent an extraordinary opportunity to provide students with the skills needed for success in postsecondary education and career in the 21st Century, it also is a very challenging endeavor. The State Department of Education is committed to providing the resources necessary for full integration of the CCSS into Idaho classrooms over the next several years. As part of this effort, we would like your feedback on the effectiveness of our professional development opportunities as well as the progress you feel you are making in your classroom in implementing the CCSS. Please take a few minutes out of what we know are your extremely busy schedules to fill out this brief survey (see link below). We would greatly appreciate it! The deadline for submission is October 19, 2012. Thank you!
