COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS
Getting to the Core of the Matter
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are an updated set of curricular standards that have been developed with the intention of unifying curricula and standards across all 50 states. Schools in California will teach to these standards beginning with the 2014-15 school year. For more information click here EGUSD - Common Core State Standards .
For a summary of the CCSS in a short 3 minute video, please click on the following link CCSS Video . This video was presented on our morning bulletin for all of our students to see.
Currently, the staff at Franklin High has been participating in professional development provided by the district, site, and outside programs to effectively assist in implementing these new standards.
Getting to the Core of the Matter
The Elk Grove Unified School District is committed to ensuring that our staff, parents and students understand the changes taking place with the Common Core State Standards. To further these efforts, the District has developed a new newsletter “Getting to the Core of the Matter” that will be distributed monthly through April. Please click on the pdf below to read Getting to the Core of the Matter.
