On the heels of a state-wide mandate to improve student performance, educators at the Indian River School District in Delaware began to implement the Common Core Standards, and now, months later, their efforts are already meeting with success.

“Delaware is really on at the vanguard of the Common Core movement,” says Curtis Linton, Vice President of School Improvement Network. “The Common Core Standards implementation work at Indian River School District highlights this fact. The Common Core implementation strategies that are outlined in the footage we have prepared will help any educator, at any level, align to the Common Core Standards and elevate student achievement in the process.”

A film crew from School Improvement Network has documented much of Indian River’s Common Core Standards implementation, and has just released over two hours of instructional footage, featuring the strategies that have made Indian River a Common Core success story.

The video program spotlights Indian River School District’s Common Core Standards implementation at a district, school, and classroom level. The program revolves around Indian River’s use of Professional Learning Communities, informal observations, and job-embedded professional development to ensure the Common Core is integrated with rigor.

To get the Indian Rivers Common Core Standards implementation program, sign up for a free 30-day trial of Common Core 360.

To learn more about the Common Core, and how to crosswalk current standards and curriculum into the Core, educators are invited to attend the School Improvement Innovation Summit, and the Common Core Institute, both held this summer in Salt Lake City, UT.
