CCSS Parent Guides

Grade-by-Grade Parent Guides to the Common Core in English and Spanish

The Council of the Great City Schools has developed content and grade-specific parent road maps that provide detailed information for parents about the expectations of the Common Core in English Language Arts and Literacy and Mathematics. These road maps include examples of grade-level focus in the content area using parent-friendly language, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child’s work and how to support student learning at home. CGCS completed the high school-level guides in February 2013, completing the set of guides from K-12 in English language arts and mathematics. More translations will follow throughout the school year.
