Common Core State Standards

The National PTA created guides for schools to help familiarize parents with the Common Core State Standards.  It may be accessed via this link: http://pta.org/4446.htm or on ARIS: National  PTA Parent Guides for the Common Core State Standards.

The standards are designed to increase rigor in the classroom and will require more inquiry, explanation and analysis from students.  Students will begin to present and defend arguments, provide evidence and persuasion in their writing and classroom discussions.  The ELA curriculum will have to contain more informational text in K-12.  Early childhood will have to experience more informational text, in additional to the literature that is traditionally taught.

The Common Core Standards is NOT a curriculum.  It is meant to clearly prescribe what children MUST know and learn at the conclusion of every grade.  Selected curriculum resources MUST reflect the requirements of the Common Core Standards.

The new K-12 standards are set to be implemented over the next three years and students are expected to perform at a higher level.  The NYS K-12 assessments will begin to reflect the rigor of the new standards.
