Common Core Frequently Asked Questions
If you are like many parents across New York State and many other states, you want to know more about the Common Core State Standards.  This can be especially true if your child's/children's school and teacher are using the Expeditionary Learning Modules in Mathematics and/or English Language Arts.  NYSED has created a dedicated web-page, in the link you will find some frequently asked questions and answers about the standards. It will be updated over time as infomration changes and becomes available from NYSED. Please contact your child’s teacher, Guidance Counselor or Mr. Price, OSMS Principal to learn more about your school’s work with the Common Core. Common Core Standards Link
Parent and Family Resources for the Common Core
"The Common Core State Standards are important because they will help all children – no matter who they are – learn the same skills. They create clear expectations for what your child should know and be able to do in key areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics. If you know what these expectations are, then you can work with the teacher and help your child prepare."
