Modeling the Transition
Boston Collegiate Charter School
This project, funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, aims to use the story of BCCS and their transition to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), with all of its opportunities and challenges, and provide access to that story to 8,000 teachers nationwide through The Achievement Network (ANet). The vision is to leverage ANet’s national network by capturing the story of one school—BCCS—and its transition to the CCSS, and sharing it widely through the ANet channels that can reach 8,000 teachers. BCCS and ANet plan to build out the content on ANet’s online portal to include teacher testimonials, case studies, and planning documents, among other content. The focus will be on five BCCS teachers, called Transition Fellows, in grades five through eight.
