Across New York State, district administrators, principals, teachers, and BOCES are working hard to implement Common Core standards and instruction into their classrooms and schools. Their hard work is paying off and positively impacting all students. Watch this video illustrating how Common Core instruction is happening in classrooms across the state. In New York State, Teaching is the CORE.
On June 4, Commissioner King engaged with student reporters across the state via video conference. The Commissioner spoke for a few minutes and then answered questions from student reporters.
