Common Core State Standards

New York State has adopted the national standards for education called the "core curriculum" for grades K through 12. These new standards bring change to the state assessments and have prompted a shift in the way students and teachers prepare for the tests.

On this page you will find information that will help you better understand the core curriculum as you support your child's education.

Working together, schools and families can help our students be successful in the classroom.

EngageNY is a great online source for information about the common core. It has guides, videos and other types of information for parents, families and teachers.

Click here for the EngageNY website.

To learn more about the common core standard "shifts," click on the link to the following document: "Common Core State Standards: Shifts for Students and Parents"

Click here for a PTA and NYSUT guide to the Common Core, "A Parent's Guide to Common Core Learning."  

Look to your child's backpack as an indicator of what they are working on in school, and the way their class work and homework now reflect the shifts. Click here for a Common Core Backpack Guide.
