Common Core Informational Forum:
In July 2010, the Board of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education voted to adopt the Common Core Standards. How were the Common Core Standards developed? What was the adoption process which led to the implementation of these standards? What may be the financial implications to a district’s school budget?
A Common Core Informational Forum is being held on Thursday, January 15, 2015 from 7:30 to 9:00 PM at Nissitissit Middle School, 33 Chace Avenue, Pepperell, MA 01463. Join the discussion about Common Core, followed by a question-and-answer forum with distinguished panelists.
