School superintendents in Florida want a three-year extension of the 2015 deadline for the implementation of Common Core State Standards. Volusia County Superintendent Margaret Smith recently told the state board of education that teachers need more time for training and preparation of classroom materials. Students in kindergarten through second grade have started using the standards, with other grades slated to switch over in the fall of 2014 and testing beginning in early 2015.
