One of our district administrators was in Albany this week and she told me that there has been a change in the implementation timeline for CCLS for the high school courses. She said that the Algebra 1 test will NOT be aligned to CCLS for the 2011-2012 school year but has been pushed back to the 2012-2013 school year. She also said that the EngageNY.org website has been changed to reflect this.
I have looked at the website for "an announcement" of this, but don't see one. I also checked the timeline and it has changed (looks like line items have been deleted), but I can't determine what is going on.
Does anyone know for sure if the date for Algebra 1 (and I assume the follow on Geometry and Algebra 2 courses) have been pushed back a year? This has an impact this school year to any schools that are teaching a 2-year Algebra 1 course (like us) for what we need to cover this year. It will also dictate how much time we will have to rewrite curriculum to incorporate the CCLS (this summer or over the course of next school year and following summer).
