 The California Collaborative Encourages Adoption of the Common Core
month: 
June, 2010

The California Collaborative on District Reform met as a group on June 29-30, 2010 to review the Common Core State Standards in depth, examine their relationship to California’s current standards, and discuss what their adoption would mean for student learning in the state. After previous study and this intensive two-day meeting, the group decided collectively to encourage the adoption of the Common Core State Standards through this letter to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The California State Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt the Common Core State Standards on August 2.
