A Tale of Two Districts: Making Curricular Decisions For the Common Core
Two districts on opposite sides of the country faced the same problem: They needed new common-core curricula. They solved that problem in very different ways. The Orange County, Fla., district scoured the marketplace and found sets of materials from a major publisher that it believes meets its needs. The Long Beach, Calif., disenchanted with publishers' offerings and short on money, wrote its own materials. Join leaders from each district's curriculum-and-instruction office as they discuss their different pathways to common-core curriculum.
Underwriting for the content of this webinar has been provided by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
Guests:Scott Fritz, chief academic officer, Orange County Public Schools, Fla.
Lisa Worsham, director of elementary curriculum, Long Beach Unified School District, Calif.
This webinar will be moderated by Catherine Gewertz, associate editor, Education Week

Optimizing Your Network for Common Core Online Standardized Testing
With the adoption of common-core curriculum and online standardized testing, assuring network availability and performance in schools has never been more critical. Especially for those that support tablets, Chromebooks, and other mobile devices that lack Ethernet ports-school networks need to ensure secure and reliable access, provide ample bandwidth capacity, and have simplified management and troubleshooting tools for remediating coverage or performance issues that may impact testing applications.
In this webinar, you'll hear directly from Jay McPhail, chief technology officer at Fullerton School District, Calif., and Jeremy Cunningham, network and systems engineer at Bryant public schools, Ark., about their recent wired and wireless deployments, and how they ensured high-availability and high-performance for their districts' common-core testing.
