It is difficult to believe, but spring has arrived! Teachers and students are busily preparing for state assessments. Interim assessments and practice tests are being given. Results are being analyzed to determine areas needing remediation and additional instruction. School field trips and district activities are well underway. Many more are forthcoming.
The Parents’ Guides to Student Success were developed by teachers, parents and education experts in response to the Common Core State Standards that more than 45 states have adopted. Created for grades K-8 and high school English, language arts/literacy and mathematics, the guides provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career.
