Be part of Connecticut’s State Network of Educators! As a member of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, the Connecticut State Department of Education invites educators who have significant experience in formative assessment and deep knowledge of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to join Connecticut’s State Network of Educators and help review professional learning resources for the Smarter Balanced Digital Library.

Smarter Balanced is committed to providing resources, tools, and professional learning opportunities for educators, so that they can tailor instruction to student needs based on information from a coherent, balanced assessment system. The heart of the formative practice resources is the Digital Library. The Digital Library is an online, user-friendly, searchable library for educators that will contain only high-quality, vetted resources. It is interactive and allows educators from member states to use and rate resources and collaborate.

The State Network of Educators will be comprised of qualified K-12 teachers and administrators and higher education professionals with experience with the following student populations: general education, gifted and talented, English language learners, and students with disabilities.

You are invited to be part of this opportunity where you will collaborate with educators from other Smarter Balanced states. Selected team members should be available to commit to days between September 2013 and September 2014. For more information, visit the Connecticut State Department of Education Web site ( The link to the online application will be available through Monday, June 3, 2013.
