The Barrington Education Foundation and Barrington Public Schools are sponsoring an information session on the new Common Core State Standards tonight, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. The forum will be held in the Barrington High School auditorium.

The Common Core State Standards, which were adopted by Rhode Island in 2010, have been discussed and debated across the country and locally as well.

At tonight’s forum, Mary Ann Snider and Phyllis Lynch, from the Rhode Island Department of Education, and “education ambassadors” Pam O’Day and Kristen Sparfven and some Barrington teachers will try to shed some light on the Common Core and show people how the standards are being incorporated into local curriculum.

The presentation will start at 7 and be followed by a question-and-answer session.

The event is free and open to the public.
