About Us:
We are parents, grandparents, teachers, retired educators, and concerned citizens who care deeply about the quality of our children's education.  We want to educate others about the impact Common Core Standards will have on our education system both locally and nationally.

*****************
Our Purpose:
This site has been created as a resource for those who want to learn more about  Common Core Standards:  What are they?  Why are there concerns, and what are those concerns?  What are the implications of Common Core implementation both short and long term?  What can we do to make a positive difference in our children's education locally?

*******************
Look in the Resource Section:
Here you will find links to other Common Core Related websites, Recent news articles about Common Core,  Videos, Interviews, etc.

Assignments and Handouts
A Brief Introduction to Common Core and Website Resources. 

On the Calendar Page

We will post "Common Core Events and or Meetings" around the state as submitted to us.

Please check in again as we will continue to add new materials as they become available.  This continues to be a work in progress, and a labor of love for the children of our country.
 
Thanks!
