Volume 38 | Issue 3 | Fall 2012 | “Making Sense of the Common Core State Standards.”
With this issue of Connections, TASH once again undertakes one of it primary missions: to educate its members and other interested individuals with cutting-edge information relevant to the lives of people with significant disabilities. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed under the leadership of National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers in collaboration with school personnel and instructional experts (Common Core State Standards Initiative, 2012). Students with disabilities, including those with severe disabilities, are expected to learn academic skills that are linked to these standards.
