Common Core Standards Coming to NC!


You may be aware of the changes to our state standards coming in 2012-2013 School Year.  NC is one of more than 40 states who have signed onto the Common Core State Standards Inititiave.  This initiative brings the same standards to each state in  language arts and math for K-12.  These standards are considered more rigorous and more connected to real life skills and prepping students for the future.  You can look at the new standards for yourself at www.corestandards.org .  The core standards will bring changes to the classroom and testing content, so keep your ears and eyes open.
