Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 14, 2012
The Common Core Standards—a new set of performance-based education standards set to hit most schools in the U.S. as soon as 2014—are the most significant education initiative to be launched in over a decade. States and districts are scrambling to obtain resources to train their educators in what the Common Core Standards are, and how to implement them.
As groups from all over the country hurry to fill this need, one education company, School Improvement Network, is emerging as the clear leader in Common Core Standards training. School Improvement Network’s Teacher Effectiveness standards component, Common Core 360, has been featured in Education Week and by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute.
“The real power of Common Core 360 is its depth,” says Curtis Linton, vice president of School Improvement Network. “The platform provides training on why the Common Core is needed, what exactly the Standards are, and how educators can implement them at the state, district, and classroom level.”
“We realized early on how important the Common Core was going to be,” Linton continues. “We’ve been out talking to experts about the Common Core, and filming educators implementing it for about a year and a half now. In the course of that time we’ve produced over 70 Common Core Standards training videos, with one hundred more coming by the end of 2012. Our extensive, comprehensive training resources are designed to not only make educators proficient in Common Core implementation, but to make every educator into a Common Core expert.
In addition to Common Core 360, School Improvement Network has collaborated to create the following Common Core Standards training resources for educators:

About School Improvement Network
Founded in 1991 by teachers, School Improvement Network has spent more time researching and documenting the best practices in education than any other organization in the world, and from their research has created the Teacher Effectiveness System (TES). TES outlines a step-by-step process to improve teacher practice, and arms educators with a set of powerful tools they can use to complete each step. Research shows that Districts and Schools who use the Teacher Effectiveness System produce better teachers, and as a result experience dramatic increases in student achievement, driving up student test scores by as much as 30% in a single year. School Improvement Network works with thousands of schools and districts in every state and around the world and has visited over 3,500 classrooms to document best practices in action.
