Developed in partnership with Education First, Insight Education Group, Student Achievement Partners, and Targeted Leadership Consulting, this implementation guide is intended for use as a reference and an action-planning springboard for school leadership teams committed to ensuring that the many interconnected components of high-quality CCSS implementation take hold in their schools. Built around seven indicators, the guide provides specific high-impact actions, measures, and tools for implementation, and it includes three vignettes to illustrate how those indicators might appear in day-to-day practice. The guide tracks closely with the professional learning module “The Role of Instructional Leadership Teams and Looking at Student Work,” also released in September 2013.
