In order to change the paradigm through partnership, CORE has established three specific areas of collaboration:

 

• Standards, Assessment and Instruction

Effectively implementing common core standards in English Language Arts and math, including aligned assessments, instructional materials, and professional development;

 

• Professional Capital

Developing, supporting, and empowering great teachers and school leaders through improved recruitment, preparation, and professional support systems, including an effective teacher and principal evaluation system;

 

• School Quality Improvement System

Sharing and using information, knowledge, and experience across districts more effectively to improve instruction and foster systems of continuous improvement, particularly in support of struggling schools.
