Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction

The website provides an overview of the Washington State K-12 Learning Standards for each subject and the Common Core State Standards. For specific information about Common Core and Special Education, refer to the OSPI Special Education website. Washington Education Association (WEA) in conjunction with OSPI has created a PDF document outlining key points about the integration of Common Core standards in Special Education.

NSTTAC CCSS Transition Think Tank

The National Secondary Transition Technical Assistance Center (NSTTAC) provides examples of transition-related activities aligned to Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics. Teachers can submit their ideas to be added to the list of activities by posting a comment at the bottom of the NSTTAC webpage. Once activities have been vetted by either the National Council of Teachers of English or the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, they will be added to the NSTACC documents.
