The Kalamazoo County Common Core Math Committee was formed during the 2010-11 school year. Representatives from the public and private school districts in Kalamazoo County make up the committee.
We believe that county-wide collaboration will lead to greater efficiencies and increased effectiveness for planning and implementing the common core. With county-wide collaboration, all classrooms can provide the same, high level of instruction and learning in math.
The committee will publish a quarterly newsletter to keep you fully informed. Check out the first newsletter that was released in June and be sure to contact your district representatives for more information.
One of the items released in the June 2011 was a suggested timeline for implementation of the CCSS-M. To ensure that schools have fully transitioned to the CCSS-M by the 2014-15 school year, the county committee offers the following suggested timeline for implementation.
2011-12: Grades K-2 and 8
2012-13: Grades 3-5 and 9-10
2013-14: Grades 6-7 and 11
