Common Ground Bulletins | San Mateo County Office of Education
The San Mateo County Office of Education produces weekly communication bulletins - called Common Ground - to support superintendents in their outreach about Common Core and the Smarter Balanced Assessments. Each bulletin includes sample Facebook posts, links to infographics, videos and other resources that district leaders and teachers can use when explaining common core to parents and community members.
