• Common Core State Standards

    What are the Common Core Standards?

    One of the more revolutionary changes the New York Education Department has recently made is the adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCLS). The Common Core Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. The Standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and career.

    The best resource is the website EngageNY. This site provide up-to-the minute information from New York State Education Department. It provides information on Common Core Standards, curriculum, assessment, teacher/leader effectiveness and data-driven instruction.
