On May 3, 2013, Dr. Dianna Roberge-Wentzell, Chief Academic Officer of the Connecticut State Department of Education issued the second installment of a monthly newsletter to all Common Core School District Leads. The May newsletter from Dr. Roberge-Wentzell focused on Common Core State Standards Implementation and is intended to support district implementation efforts. The newsletter contained nine featured topics related to the Common Core that included videos about the Common Core for Teacher Professional Development; Common Core Aligned “Practice Assessment” Update; and Community of Practice @ CAS.
The implementation of the Common Core applies to all public school students including students with disabilities receiving special education. Therefore, it is critical that school district special education staff work in collaboration with their general education partners to ensure an inclusive, unified application in the implementation of the Common Core at the district level since students with disabilities are represented in every facet of academic life.
