An Important Message from the Superintendent
  • Textbooks - Common Core

    I have been asked by numerous parents why our district is still utilizing common core materials, and what can be done to eliminate the curriculum.  When Common Core was adopted by our State Board of Education in the late 1990’s, one of the main reasons for its implementation was its tie to large amounts of federal dollars for education.  Since Common Core’s implementation, there have been unforeseen consequences which have led to changes.  As a result, parts of Common Core are slowly being repealed, for example, in 2014, the PARCC testing consortium was eliminated. 

    In 2015 the State adopted the College and Career Readiness Standards which repealed more Common Core principles.  I have spoken to State Representative McLeod and State Senator DeBar, requesting that they continue to push for the full repeal of Common Core.

    As a result of the slow repeal some of our textbooks will have Common Core written on them. I have contacted each company and they will be replacing these text books with new ones that are being printed. Thank you for your continued support of our district and feel free to contact me at my office at any time at 601.947.6993.
