CCSS California Council for the Social Studies

The initials for California Council for the Social Studies are now being confused with Common Core State Standards.  More people will visit our website looking for the Common Core.  We should have a helpful link on there along with some Common Core posts that people will stop to read first.

Brent Heath opened up his home in Ontario, CA for our Executive Board Retreat where we planned for the upcoming year.


The Executive Board consists of the President, Avi Black, President Elect, Brent Heath, First Vice President, Marsha Ingrao, Northern Area Vice President, Denise Findlay, Valerie Dougherty, Central Area VP, and Amanda Roraback, Southern Area VP – soon to be First VP, and Tracy Middleton upcoming Southern Area VP.  For two days we plowed through many nitty gritty details that allow CCSS to present a state conference that encompasses all the social studies, produce literature that keeps teachers informed, and provide an advocate at the state capitol.

I am so excited to be a part of this organization.  Everybody on the Board of Directors are volunteers, and those volunteers change annually or bi-annually.  Yet the mission remains the same – to support and advocate for social studies educators in California.


Serving as a leader means having a say in what goes on in an organization, lots of hard work, but mostly it is a chance to get close to some really awesome people and do something that none of us could ever dream of doing alone.  What a great way to spend our lives!
