ITEM
1.
Common Core Standards
Discussion:
Jennifer Germano and Susan Bierster presented on Common Core Standards which the
state of Florida has adopted for implementation in the K-12 system. Common Core will
fundamentally change the scope and depth of learning for Florida students. The EPI and
Education programs at Palm Beach State have begun implementation of the language of
Common Core and the rubrics for grading and lesson development. In addition, Cassandra
Brown from the FLDOE is offering workshops on aligning the Common Core Curriculum
with College level courses – specifically in English and Math. Associate Deans who
oversee credit level English and Math will be given more information on the summer
workshops for Palm Beach County. Susan Bierster will contact Cassandra with the
information so Cassandra can add the Associate Deans to the distribution list. These
summer workshops are intended for college faculty and high school teachers to work on
aligning the curriculum so students can graduate High School college ready. Handouts
were given that gave more information on common core including websites.
