How will it impact students?
Whenfully implemented, the new Common Core State Standards will be the largest and most significant shift in how students will be expected to demonstrate their learning in their everyday classes and on standardized tests. Beyond the basic facts, students will be assessed on how effectively they communicate, collaborate, create, justify, persuade, and more. At the Common Core Parent Night on March 4, we discussed what parents needs to know about Common Core and how to support their child with the learning expectations and assessments.
