Beginning the School Year of 2014-15 your child will receive a new form of education. They are as follows:
- The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) which provides a practical way to prepare children for the challenges of a constantly changing world – by learning step-by-step the real-world skills they need for career and college. Please press Common Core Explained to help you understand the new standards.
- New computer-based test – called Measurement of Academic Performance and Progress (MAPP). The MAPP test is dynamically adapts to a student’s responses – as they take the test. Smarter Balanced assessments will go beyond multiple-choice questions to include extended response and technology enhanced items, as well as performance tasks that allow students to demonstrate critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
- As a condition of Districts receiving State funds, each District’s must develop and adopt an expenditure plan detailing how the funds will be spent. The plan must have parent’s participation and a public hearing must be held on the plan.
