On January 24–25, 2011, Great Lakes East Comprehensive Center, Great Lakes West Comprehensive Center, and Regional Educational Laboratory Midwest held a regional meeting titled “Building a Collaborative Work Plan for Implementation of the Common Core State Standards,” in Rosemont, Illinois. The two-day meeting convened state education agency (SEA) teams from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin who are responsible for implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in their states. Prior to the meeting, the centers administered an SEA needs assessment survey to ensure that each state had a voice in planning the structure and content of the meeting and to ensure that the challenges of each state would be discussed.
