A valuable first step is having PD time to actually read the Common Core in its entirety, including the Appendices. It would be difficult to transition without a firm understanding of the Core and many PD opportunities overlook the opportunity to actually spend some time interacting with the text. I would advise reading it, highlighting it, and having discussions about the "what" before you transition to the why and the how.
Hope this helps,

Durring a coomn planning time have the teachers go through the new core and mark the text.
Assign or have teachers select a section and become proficient in it. Then teachers can share their knowledge with each other. This won't put an undue burden on any one person. It's also easier for each teacher to keep up with changes and pass them on to colleagues.
