The following message was sent out to all school administrators from the Office of College and Career Readiness, and I wanted to be sure it was also received by all special education contacts in the field.

This message was sent on behalf of Assistant Commissioner Michael J. Muenks, Office of College and Career Readiness.

As you may know, the Missouri State Board of Education last week approved adoption of the Common Core State Standards.  In an effort to notify all interested personnel and to outline the transition timeline, the attached letter is being sent to our various constituencies.

Please take a moment to read the following memo from the Department about the Common Core State Standards.  Click for important information:

Please share this information with your teachers, curriculum personnel, counselors, and others who may have an interest.  We will be creating a new page on the DESE website http://dese.mo.gov/index.html by the end of the week with more information and FAQs about the Common Core State Standards.
