Introduction to MVSD Special Education Resource Wiki-page. As of June 2013, the NH DOE website does not include information regarding implementing the CCSS for Special Education. Below you will find sites and documents some of which are from other states. Each state is allowed to add their own standards to the CCSS, but they are not allowed to eliminate anything. So understand that, as you explore these sites there may be some discrepancies between their state and ours. However, the vast majority of information is appropriate for implemention of CCSS in New Hampshire.

opportunity to improve access to rigorous academic content standards for students with disabilities. The
continued development of understanding about research-based instructional practices and a focus on their
effective implementation will help improve access to mathematics and English language arts (ELA)
standards for all students, including those with disabilities....etc (for more...)
