Common Core Forum for Parents, Students, Teachers, and Community Members
The forum will feature Sandra Alberti of Student Achievement Partners and will include breakout sessions for attendees to engage in meaningful discussions about Connecticut’s implementation of Common Core. Participants will also have an opportunity for hands-on practice with the new Common Core aligned Smarter Balanced Assessments.
The event is free and begins with registration and a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. It also includes lunch.
Please register to attend and encourage parents, community members, and especially students to attend as well. Student perspective on the Common Core is crucial to the discussion.
