Event Description

This event takes place on Wednesday, November 7, 2012, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.

As schools across the country move toward implementing the Common Core State Standards, district officials face a major challenge: How do they make the new academic expectations understandable to parents? A number of national organizations, including the Council of the Great City Schools and the National Parent Teacher Association, have taken up that effort, publishing written materials and creating video and audio segments—in multiple languages—designed to explain the standards to parents, in clear, jargon-free terms.

Our webinar guests will talk about those efforts, describe common challenges that districts face in discussing the common core with parents, and explain how school systems can address parents’ fears and misgivings about the standards.


Denise Walston, director of mathematics, Council of the Great City Schools, Wash.

Gina Kilday, K-6 mathematics coach, Exeter-West Greenwich Regional School District, R.I.
