PLANADA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DISTRICT LOCAL CONTROL ACCOUNTABILITY PLAN


Dear Planada Learning Community,

The Common Core State Standards are a set of educational standards voluntarily adopted by 45 participating states, including California. The Common Core Standards specify what students should know at each grade level in:

  English Language Arts

  Mathematics

  Science

  History

 

All participating states will now have a common set of expectations for each student at each grade level; previously, each state had its own set of expectations, which resulted in potentially significant differences in student learning from state to state. The Common Core State Standards were designed by teachers, parents and education experts to prepare students for college and career in a 21st century, global economy, and they align with standards used by other countries. The standards are NOT a curriculum; rather they describe what students should know at each grade level. States, districts, schools decide which strategies will best help students learn the Common Core State Standards (CDE, 2013).

The staff in the Planada Elementary School District is at work learning new ways to teach students that will prepare them for work and life in the 21st Century. The Common Core Standards, which will replace the current standards, and will emphasize depth and complexity, use of technology and evidence-based analysis of text. Students will explore, collaborate, and discuss complex ideas in depth. Teachers will nurture creativity and critical thinking, and use technology as a teaching and learning tool. Learning will be interactive, and teachers will ask probing questions as students discuss and analyze information together.

If you have any questions about Common Core or any other district program please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s principal or myself at the district office. This will be an exciting transitional time for staff, parents and students.
