The third session in the 2010-2011 NASDSE Professional Development Series, "Common Core Standards: What They Mean for States and Schools," will be available online Wednesday, March 23, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. CST.

The National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) have led an effort to develop national voluntary common core standards for K-12 in English/language arts and math.  These standards were released in June 2010 and more than half of the states have already agreed to adopt them.  In this conference, representatives from the NGA and CCSSO will discuss the standards, the adoption process, how states will use them, and specifically address what the common core standards mean for special education.
