Common Core State Standards
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are an updated set of curricular standards that have been developed with the intention of unifying curricula and standards across all 50 states. Schools in California will teach to these standards beginning with the 2014-15 school year. For more information click here EGUSD - Common Core State Standards .
For a summary of the CCSS in a short 3 minute video, please click on the following link CCSS Video . This video was presented on our morning bulletin for all of our students to see.
Currently, the staff at Franklin High has been participating in professional development provided by the district, site, and outside programs to effectively assist in implementing these new standards.
In addition to CCSS, there will be a transition to a new testing called Smarter Balance which are aligned with CCSS. This year only 10% of California schools were selected to pilot the Smarter Balance Assessments and Franklin High School was chosen. The assessments that Franklin High students are taking are addressing the CCSS in math and English. We are testing over 700 students and their feedback is critical for Franklin High. It will give us an insight on the administration and rigor of these new assessments.
