Guidebook: Developing and Implementing Core Values and Expectations


This guide is designed to assist schools in meeting the 2014 Standard 1: Core Values and Expectations and to help schools integrate and implement the school’s mission, core values, beliefs, and 21st century learning expectations into their application of the Teaching and Learning Standards. We recommend that member schools to read this document carefully and use it as they review, revise and modify their learning expectations; develop analytic rubrics; and assess each student's achievement of the learning expectations.
