In 15,000 school districts across the country, educators are moving into the critical stages of Common Core implementation to help students become college- and career-ready. Place-based funders will play an especially important role in ensuring that schools succeed in helping students meet these new higher expectations.

The scope and sweep of the Common Core State Standards creates a new environment that impacts all funders involved in public education. In this webinar, learn from three place-based grantmakers about how they have adjusted their strategies in response to the new challenges and opportunities presented by the Common Core.
