On my Blog in the lower right hand corner under the category Favorite Links and Great Parent Resources is a link to the Common Core. Forty five states and three U.S. territories have adopted the Common Core Curriculum. Massachusetts was one of the states that adopted the Common Core.
The Progress Reports sent home last year in our pilot year and being sent home this year again to parents are aligned with the National Common Core Curriculum. The Common Core Standards outline knowledge and skills that students will learn in school.
