Parents and community members are critical partners in supporting young people and their education, and you play an important role in Common Core implementation. We hope you will utilize this site to expand your understanding of the Common Core State Standards so that you can support our efforts of transforming teaching and learning.
Please start with the parent and community resources on this page and then check out the information on the rest of our site to understand how teachers and schools are transitioning to the new standards.
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to know and be able to do, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. 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 careers.
Please join in supporting the success of all students in fulfilling the potential of the Common Core State Standards.
