Transitioning to New Standards


                                  Understanding the
                                  Current Backdrop
44 States,
DC, & the
     Virgin
   Islands
  adopted
the CCSS
For which set of standards will we be
held accountable?


         Common Core State Standards (CCSS)


      and the augmented California Common Core
                               Standards (CCCS)


         Which standards will be the basis of
         our accountability system?? Which
         will be tested?
Current Legislation


     Proposed & Chaptered (passed and
               signed into law)
Reauthorization of …

   STAR Reauthorization (AB 250 Brownley)
    ◦ STAR sunsets in 2012-13
    ◦ pending legislation may amend this to 2013-14
   What about
    ◦ CAHSEE?
    ◦ A to G?
   What about Accountability
    ◦ ESEA Reauthorization
    ◦ API → EQI
Textbook Frameworks and Adoption
Timelines
Suspension of Textbook Adoption
   Currently Signed into law Senate Bill 70
    ◦ suspends the development of math frameworks until
      2015 – resulting in delaying math textbook adoption
      until 11/18 (ELA to follow in 2020)
   Proposed legislation Assembly Bill 250
    ◦ Requires SBE to adopt revised frameworks and
      evaluation criteria aligned with the CCCS no later than
      5/30/13 (math) and 5/30/14 (ELA)
    ◦ Would partially lift suspension so textbook adoption
      could happen in 11/16 (for ELA 11/18)

           Adoption   Timeline (SB   Legislation
                           70)        (AB 250)



  ELA       2008        2020           2017


  Math      2007        2018           2015

  SBAC assessments to go live in 2014
Proposed Legislation

   Bridge Instructional Materials (SB 140)
    ◦ SSPI Torlakson has invited publishers of SBE adopted
      materials in math and ELA to submit supplemental
      instructional materials that bridge the gap between
      their SBE adopted materials and the CCCS
      Publishers voluntarily make submissions
      SBE will recruit teachers and content specialists to review
       submissions
      By September 2012 SBE will examine the results and make
       their approvals of the advisory (not SBE-adopted) materials
Textbook Programs Eligible for Review

   In Mathematics - SBE approved programs
    adopted programs in 2007
    ◦ K-7 basic grade level programs
    ◦ No grade 8 programs
    ◦ No intervention/algebra readiness
   In English Language arts – SBE approved
    programs adopted in 2008
    ◦ K-8, program types 1-3
    ◦ No intervention programs
Proposed Legislation ELD Standards

   Alignment of ELD standards to CCCS – ELA (AB
    124)
    ◦ SSPI would recommend new ELD standards on or
      before 8/31/12 for SBE adoption at the end of
      September.
Needed Legislation – 8th Grade Algebra

   The following two issues were created by the
    8/2/10 Adoptions of CCCS and require
    legislative action for resolution
    ◦ Grade 8 Mathematics and Algebra – the adoption of a
      dual set of standards at Grade 8 raises a number of
      issues
      CA’s current Grade 8 Algebra has 51 standards (previously
       there were 25)
      In the past CA’s Algebra I course was the same regardless of
       the grade level at which it was taught – ESEA requires a single
       set at each grade level
      This 51 standard Algebra I course will not be covered by either
       assessment consortia: SBAC or PARCC
Needed Legislation – CCR Anchors

   College & Career Readiness Anchor Standards
    for ELA were not adopted in the CCCS
    ◦ These anchor standards provide focus for ELA and it’s
      staircase design of skills that build up college and
      career readiness
      Noteworthy is the fact that the anchor standards in grades K-5
       and 6-12 provide the focus and structure within the grade spans
       to build to the desired level at high school completion
      The absence of these standards make CA differ from other
       adopters of the CCSS and could cause some confusion when
       national moves filter down
Current Standards Documents - ELA
    English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies,
     Science, and Technical Subjects
     ◦ THE ELA & Literacy Standards
     ◦ Appendix A: Research Supporting Key Elements
     ◦ Appendix B: Text Exemplars and Sample Performance Tasks
     ◦ Appendix C: Samples of Student Writing
CCCS                                    CCSS



     Includes CA’s added 15%              Appendix A
     Large additions to Algebra I in       ◦ Designing High School
      grade 8                                 Courses based on the
      ◦ A total of 51 standards               Common Core State
     Two high school courses are             Standards
      added
      ◦ Calculus
      ◦ Advanced Statistics and
        Probability

NCLB Waivers

   Awaiting Reauthorization of the Elementary and
    Secondary Education Act (ESEA)
    ◦ Provisions available for waiver:
      All students proficient in ELA and math by 2013-14
      The requirement that states identify schools for improvement,
       corrective action, and restructuring
      Schools identified for improvement provide public school choice
       and Supplemental Educational Services (SES)
According to One Analysis

   The authorization to use the 20% of Title I funds
    in PI schools which are now reserved for
    tutoring and transportation could free up about
    $1 billion nationwide for use in other purposes.
US Department of Education States

   States can request this flexibility ONLY IF they
    “develop a rigorous and comprehensive plan
    addressing the three critical areas that are
    designed to improve educational outcomes for
    all students”
Three Critical Areas that Need to be
Addressed to Apply for the NCLB Waiver
1.       Transitioning to College- and Career-Ready Standards
         and Assessments
2.       Developing Systems of Differentiated Recognition,
         Accountability, and Support
            States must recognize and reward the highest achieving
             schools that serve low income students and those that show the
             greatest student progress.
            States Must also identify two categories of low performing
             schools
             Priority Schools – the bottom 5% that must implement “turn around”
              strategies
             Focus Schools – in the next 10% that must implement strategies for
              instructional improvement
Three Critical Areas that Need to be
Addressed to Apply for the NCLB Waiver
3.    Evaluating and Supporting Teacher and
      Principal Effectiveness
      including assessment on multiple valid measures
       “including student progress over time and multiple
       measures of professional practice.
Timelines

    There will be two windows for states to apply
     for the 2012-13 waiver
    1. Submit by November 14 for December peer review
    2. Submit by mid-February for spring peer review
What Will California Do?
Debate in DC

   Likely to enflame the partisan divide over Educational
    policy and other issues
   Joe Kline (Republican Congressman)
    ◦ “While I appreciate some of the policies outlined in the secretary’s
      waivers plan, I simply cannot support a process that grants the
      Secretary of Education sweeping authority to handpick winners
      and losers.”
    ◦ “It sets a dangerous precedent, and every single American should
      be extremely wary. Make no mistake –this is a political move that
      could have a damaging impact on congressional efforts to enact
      lasting reforms to current elementary and secondary education
      law.”

Roadmap to Winning an NCLB Waiver

   fdjgniodfng
1. Transitioning to College and Career-
    Ready Standards and Assessments
  1. Is there a plan to provide professional development
     to teachers and principals?
  2. Will the state disseminate high-quality instructional
     materials to accompany the new standards?
  3. Is the state planning to increase access to college-
     level courses, dual-enrollment courses, and other
     accelerated learning opportunities?
  4. Is the state going to work with colleges of education
     to better prepare teachers for the new standards?
2. Developing Systems of Differentiated
  Recognition, Accountability, & Support
  1. Are the state’s new proficiency targets ambitious but
     achievable given the state’s existing proficiency
     rates?
  2. In identifying rewards for successful schools, has the
     state made the case that the rewards will actually be
     meaningful and worthwhile to schools?
  3. For the “focus schools” (not bottom 5% of schools
     but the 10% of schools just above that) has the state
     justified that the interventions selected will actually
     increase student achievement?
  4. Has the state outlined a rigorous review process for
     outside providers for those who will help with school
     turnaround work?
3. Evaluating and Supporting Teacher
   and Principal Effectiveness
  1. Is student growth a significant enough of the new
     evaluation system to differentiate among teachers
     who have made “significantly different contributions”
     to student growth or closing the achievement gap?
  2. Will evaluations be frequent enough?
  3. Is there a plan for differentiated professional
     development based on evaluations?
  4. Will the state’s plan ensure that local school districts
     will actually be able to put these new evaluations
     systems into place by 2013-14 (as a pilot) and 2014-
     15 (full implementation)?
