Common Core and ELA Resources

Common Core State StandardsBuilding on the excellent foundation of standards states have laid, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are the first step in providing our young people with a high-quality education. It should be clear to every student, parent, and teacher what the standards of success are in every school.

Teachers, parents, and community leaders have all weighed in to help create the Common Core State Standards. The standards clearly communicate what is expected of students at each grade level. This will allow our teachers to be better equipped to know exactly what they need to help students learn and establish individualized benchmarks for them. The Common Core State Standards focus on core conceptual understandings and procedures starting in the early grades, thus enabling teachers to take the time needed to teach core concepts and procedures well—and to give students the opportunity to master them.Reading Student

This page has been set up to be a resource page – a place to find documents and web links which will help you as we transition to the CCSS. It is a work in progress. We will add documents as time and space allows. Please check back here frequently for updates!
