Something big is happening in education across the nation, in California, and here at Hickman - the adoption of the Common Core State Standards. Created by teachers, parents, education experts, and others from across the country, the standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career. Important things to understand about CCSS:
Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards- English Language Arts and Mathematics
The Council of the Great City Schools' parent roadmaps in English language arts/literacy and Mathematics provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.
