Welcome to our Common Core State Standards webpage. The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents will become more aware on what they can do to help their students. The standards are a starting point for transforming the way we practice the art of teaching and problem solving in relevant real world experiences. The standards are designed to help reflect the knowledge and skills that our young students need for success in future colleges and careers.
Pleasant Valley School District will focus on providing critical thinking and helping students develop a strong understanding towards complex problem solving. By building an excellent foundation in standards, this will provide our young students with high-quality education.
The office of Curriculum Instruction & Assessment has designed this webpage to help provide resources for teachers and parents. These resources will promote useful tools that will increase the communication and collaboration around Common Core State Standards and help guide decisions about teaching, learning, and assessments.
