OHIO IS MOVING TO NEW EDUCATION STANDARDS
Ohio and 44 other states have volunteered to adopt "Common Core State Standards" in Math and English Languages Arts. Ohio also has written new standards in Science and Social studies.
Teachers at South Elementary are analyzing the standards now so we can put them into action by the fall of 2012. What does this mean for student learning?
Your student will be studying fewer topics with each subject, but drilling deeper into each to gain more understanding.
Your student will be carrying well-understood key concepts from grade to grade to broaden and build on his or her knowledge.
Your child will learn to relate key ideas from Math, Science, Languages Arts and Social Studies to real-life situations.
Your child's teacher will be using more in -depth teaching methods and getting frequent measurements of how your child is doing.
