Welcome to the VIVA Common Core Idea Exchange.

I am Cindy Richards, your moderator. Thank you for joining our project to bring grassroots voice to the front of the discussion on the most effective implementation of Common Core State Standards.

How the VIVA Idea Exchange™ Works:

STEP 1: Educators like you across the country share your ideas about how to take Common Core to the next level — improving implementation in schools, supporting teachers, preparing parents for the changes, helping students to succeed.

STEP 2: Active and engaged conversation leaders are invited to join a Writing Collaborative to synthesize the ideas into a recommendations report.

STEP 3: Members of the Writing Collaborative meet together with national policy leaders, state education chiefs and school district superintendents to discuss recommendations and identify opportunities to impact national policy on this issue.
