Murphy on Common Core Resources for Parents

Dear Parents,  

Recently, the New York State Education Department (SED) has shared a link of Common Core resources for parents. I have attached this for your use.http://engageny.org/parent-and-family-resources  

Admittedly, the site can be overwhelming with so much information for parents.  I suggest you “bookmark” the site and browse through the information over a period of time rather than trying to absorb all of the materials at once. 

Remember students in grades 3-8 will take the new Common Core ELA and Mathematics assessments in April.  SED will begin to rollout high school exams next year. 

If you have any questions about the Common Core standards, please feel free to contact your child’s building principal. Thank you.   

Charles Murphy, Superintendent of Schools

Island Trees Union Free School District
