Connecting High-Quality Expanded Learning Opportunities and the Common Core State Standards to Advance Student Success

This brief explores ways to strengthen expanded learning opportunities (ELOs) by building their connection to the Common Core State Standards Initiative (Common Core). The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is interested in both efforts and wants to support states in maximizing their impact to ensure the success of all learners. Three examples of emerging state policies, practices, and programs are highlighed to foster dialogue in states about how ELOs and the Common Core can work together to advance student success.
