What is New at Courtney This Year?

What is the Common Core State Standards?

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is an evaluation and realignment of learning goals for our students. As a staff, we have been working to understand the new CCSS and how to implement them. The end goal of CCSS is students who are have a globally competitive education. If you would like to know more about the Common Core, contact your student's teacher or visit Common Core Standards (from the national PTA).
