Common Core State Standards Survey

Common Core State Standards Survey

 

As the Elk Grove Unified School District enters its third year of implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), we are seeking your feedback and input on the communications and supports that we are providing families. We will use this information as part of our continuous efforts to improve the communication tools and resources that we provide.

 

Please take a few minutes of your time to complete the online survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/73QSB5C.

 

As a reminder, the Common Core State Standards are an updated set of academic standards that have been developed with the intention of unifying learning expectations for students across all states. Common Core State Standards bring strong advantages to students in California and in the United States. First, by unifying the expectations, assessments of educational quality and the federal funding that is based on such assessment will be more equitable. Second, students throughout the United States will be in a better position to compete with students throughout the world for university admission and for jobs in a global market. Finally, these standards define kindergarten through twelfth grade learning that will ensure that students are well prepared for post-secondary education and careers.

 

With the implementation of the CCSS, California will move from the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) assessment system to a new system in the 2014-2015 school year. This new system will be referred to as the California Measurement of Academic Performance and Progress (CalMAPP). Within this system, students will take assessments referred to as Smarter Balanced Assessments, which includes shifting from paper-and-pencil tests to computerized assessments starting in the 2014-2015 school year. The new assessments are designed to meet federal and state-level accountability requirements and provide teachers and parents with timely and accurate information to measure and trace individual student growth.


EGUSD will continue to share information about CCSS and the new testing system throughout the school year. For more information, please check out our Common Core State Standards website at http://blogs.egusd.net/ccss/.
