In general, the CCSS will prepare students for college and career. The main transition will be towards higher level thinking, reading and writing skills. Some specific examples of changes you are likely to see willl be in the area of math. The district has purchased specific Common Core bridge materials for math classes to help with this transition. These workbooks will be used on a daily basis in math classes like Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2.
