The district will be hosting a series of Common Core Parent Academies in January and February. These sessions are designed to provide resources that assist families in helping their children. Each meeting will begin with a brief overview of the Common Core shifts and alignments.  Parents will then divide into breakout sessions, which will provide grade-level specific discussions of general lesson material and resources. Teachers and administrators will be on hand to facilitate model lessons and stimulate instruction-based discussion with parents.
