Transitioning

        Implementing the Common Core State Standards in South Carolina the South Carolina State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts and mathematics.  In an effort to support districts in the implementation of the CCSS, the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) is providing a system of support to assist District Implementation Teams in the implementation of CCSS in South Carolina.

        A District Implementation Team is the group of individuals identified by each district to provide leadership regarding the CCSS implementation. The size and configuration of the District Implementation Team in each district is at the discretion of district leadership. As part of the CCSS system of support, the SCDE has created Implementing Common Core State Standards for South Carolina, a video series to assist District
Implementation Teams. The District Implementation Team in each district should use the information provided in Implementing Common Core State Standards for South Carolina to inform the district’s plan for ensuring that district instructional staff is prepared to implement the CCSS during the 2013-14 school year.
    
        This video series can be accessed via StreamlineSC (http://www.scetv.org/education/streamlinesc/). Attached for your convenience please find StreamlineSC Account Setup Instructions, which provides
directions for establishing a StreamlineSC account, and CCSS DIT Video Segment Table of Contents, which provides a list of the topics covered and resources needed in each video segment.  Implementing Common Core State Standards for South Carolina is designed to support district implementation plans. They are in no way intended to be exhaustive of all of the resources that districts will need to develop in order to implement the CCSS.

        The SCDE continues to develop resources to assist districts in implementing the CCSS, which  we will provide through the SCDE Common Core State Standards in South Carolina webpage (http://ed.sc.gov/agency/PR/Standards-and-Curriculum /CommonCoreStateStandardsinSouthCarolina2.html).
SCDE is committed to assisting districts in implementing the CCSS. We recognize that the level of support needed for the successful implementation of the CCSS will vary from district to district. Once your District Implementation Team has viewed the video series, please feel free to contact the SCDE Office of Teacher Effectiveness in the Division of School Effectiveness so that we may work together to determine the level of professional development support your District Implementation Team will require.

        Please contact Dr. Damara Hightower-Davis at ddavis@scteachers.org or 803-734-3461 with questions regarding Common Core State Standards in South Carolina.
