Common Core Standards

"The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy."

Rosetta Stone

The Instruction Department purchased 50 Rosetta Stone Licenses intended for students and staff. 

There are two intended purposes for this purchase:

  1. To provide older students, especially newcomers, with additional English instruction during the school year, and 
  2. To provide staff with the resources to communicate in the native language of their students and families.

While we have identified two priority staff groups to receive these materials, i.e., Early Childhood staff and administrators who have significant bilingual populations, we will still have additional licenses for other staff members.  

If you are interested in using this tool, please send an email to powers.diane that includes:

  • Your current position in the district and
  • Language you need to learn.
