Curriculum: Common Core Standards 2014-2015

Below are sites that can assist parents and students in understanding and preparing for the upcoming shift to Common Core Standards.  These links outline what is Common Core, the rationale for a National Common Core Standard, the shifts in thinking these changes will require from educators, parents, and students, and the substantially different manner in which students will be assessed in 2014-15.  The district team of Curriculum and Instruction, as well as a team of classroom teachers, has been meeting, reviewing the standards, and creating units to prepare SJUSD for this change.  As well, the team of teachers have been piloting these units in preparation for next year’s rollout of Common Core. We are excited about the change to curriculum that fosters greater analysis and critical thinking to assist our students in preparing for their future in the 21st century.

This is the link from the state in regards to our ELA standards K-12 and as well as history and science ELA literacy.
