As we continue to support the successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), we would like to share some excellent parent resources.
Two websites parents may find helpful are:
1) http://www.pta.org/4446.htm, - a complete set of guides and web-based presentations.
2) http://www.corestandards.org. - a primary resource for educators to deepen understanding of the standards.
Each school should also have copies of the Parent Guides on the Common Core State Standards, a publication of the National Parent Teacher Association.
These guides are to help parents understand the new standards and provide excellent overviews of what students will learn in each grade. Additionally, the guides give specific suggestions on what parents might discuss with their students’ teacher(s).
