Common Core State Standards (CCSS):  The NYS Board of Regents adopted the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards in January 2011.  The English Language Arts and Math standards were implemented throughout NYS schools beginning in the 2012-2013 school year.  The standards have been adopted by 45 States and are designed to reflect the knowledge and skills our students need for success in college and careers.  To inform and assist parents, teachers and administrators with the implementation of the CCSS, the NYS Education Department encourages individuals to utilize the following website:  www.engageny.org.  Once on the site, please click on one of the following six (6) tabs:  Common Core Curriculum and Assessments; Teacher/Leader Effectiveness; Data Driven Instruction; Video Library; Professional Development and Network teams; and Parent & Family Resources.  Refer to Frequently Asked Questions.
