Resources for Parents and Guardians

A successful implementation of the new California Common Core State Standards will require parent support and understanding. We would like to begin informing parents and families about the Common Core Standards.

These resources have been compiled by the California Department of Education for parents and guardians interested in learning more about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and how to support their child’s attainment of these standards.
