Visalia Unified School District Superintendent Craig Wheaton will be speaking about Common Core at the Visalia Branch of the Tulare County Library on Thursday, September 25th, 2014 at 6:30 pm.
The California Department of Education voted to adopt the Common Core State Standards System in 2010, with implementation scheduled by 2014. Common Core was instituted in the Visalia Unified School District beginning in the 2014-2015 school year, although the transition began last year. The emphasis of Common Core is on problem solving and being able to explain how you arrived at your answer. Please join us in the Library's Blue Room to learn more about Common Core. This program is free to the public and all are welcome to attend. For more information, please call (559) 713-2703 or go to: www.tularecountylibrary.org.
