Grade Level Resources

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, allowing teachers and parents the ability to know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our students need for success in college and the workplace.

The Anchor Standards in English Language Arts and the Mathematical Practices reflect the major areas of emphasis across all grade levels.
