Engageny Parent & Family Resources

The Common Core State Standards are important because they will help all children - no matter who they are - learn the same skills. They create clear expectations for what your child should know and be able to do in key areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics.

Common Core State Standards

"Of all stakeholders, students are perhaps the most ready to implement the new standard. Offered engaging content by well-prepared teachers using effective strategies, students will respond with determined interest and perform to their best ability. The role of every other stakeholder groups is to ensure that the students - all students - gain meaningful access to the content and that all necessary support systems are in place."
