The Common Core Standards

Rose School has been transitioning our curriculum to a new generation of standards - The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which have established rigorous expectations for student work at every grade level.  

This three-minute video explains how the Common Core State Standards will help students achieve at high levels and help them learn what they need to know to get to graduation and beyond.





The Smarter Balanced Assessments are the next generation of assessments that will measure student growth toward the Common Core Standards.  For the 2014-2015 School Year all Rose students in grades 3-6 will participate the Smarter Balanced Assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics.  Practice tests to familiarize students parents and teachers with the format of the new tests are available on-line.




These roadmaps include examples of grade-level focus in the content area, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home.
