Common Core Implementation Team
The purpose of the Common Core Implementation Team (CCIT) is to establish a means of effective and efficient communication between the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) and teams of school leaders, educators, and parents in each district who have a critical role in implementing or supporting the changes necessary to achieve the outcomes of the Common Core State Standards. Ideally, each district team will include the superintendent, the business administrator, curriculum supervisors, principals, teachers, school board members and parents. The Department of Education has recently invited higher education administrators and faculty to join the CCIT in order to disseminate information on the Common Core State Standards to colleagues.
We are a school committed to the Common Core and truly see the positive changes that have occurred in our students. Our special education students with behavioral and learning disabilities have demonstrated academic growth, are engaged in the learning process, and are motivated to learn. I see my staff teaching in a deeper, richer way, reflecting about their lessons, working more collaboratively with each other, and ready for the next challenge. "

In short, the CCIT is intended to support New Jersey educators' efforts to transition to the Common Core State Standards.
