Common Core Standards
What are Common Core State Standards?
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, 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. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

Evergreen School District has begun to transition to Common Core Standards. We are happy to announce that over the next few years, you will notice some significant changes to instruction and assessment in our schools that will directly impact your child. In 2010, California adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for full implementation during the 2014-15 school year. As we near full implementation and begin to make the transition to CCSS, it is important that you know about these changes and what resources are available to help support your child.
Fall Community Forums designed to provide parents with important information about the Common Core took place in October 2013. While there will be additional opportunities for parents to learn about the Common Core, the fall presentation can be viewed here:
