Common Core State Standards and Special Populations

Using CCSS with Special Populations


While the standards set grade-specific goals, they do not define how the standards should be taught or which materials should be used to support students. DPI recognizes that there needs to be a range of supports in place to ensure that all students, including those with special needs and English language learners, can master the standards. Below are a few resources that can help guide choosing supports with special populations.
