Common Core State Standards
During the 2011-2012 school year, the Western School District will be hard at work transitioning its English Language Arts and Math curriculums to align with the new federal Common Core State Standards.
Teachers will begin implementing this new curriculum in classrooms in the fall of 2012.
The first planned State assessment of student proficiency on these new standards will be in the 2014-2015 school year.
