The North Dakota Regional Education Associations (REAs) are excited to announce the availability of a new resource for ND educators. The ND State Standards Implementation Guide started through work within our Succeed 2020 grants as a way to provide ongoing support to schools in the transition to and implementation of the new ND State Standards in Math and English Language Arts.
The NDSS Implementation Guide (http://ndss.ndsucceed2020.org/) was developed collaboratively by members of the eight ND REAs to help define “full implementation” of the North Dakota State Standards based on the Common Core. It serves several functions for principals, teachers, and the REAs:
- Identify key components for full implementation,
- Establish a common language/common understanding around NDSS implementation,
- Assist schools in identifying areas for professional learning,
- And assist REAs in developing and delivering professional learning.
We hope that you will review and use this new resource and share it widely amongst educators with whom you work! As always, if we can be of assistance, contact your REA staff directly!
