Common Core Standards…
Our staff is in the process of implementing the Common
Core Learning Standards and preparing our students for the new testing
methods which will begin in 2013. Our current ISAT and PSAE testing is
based on The Illinois Learning Standards. Within the next year, Illinois
will begin testing on the Common Core Standards. These are slightly
different from the current Illinois State Standards with the intent of
being clearer, higher level, nationally benchmarked, evidence-based and
including 21st Century Skills. The goal for this change is to
bring about a better preparation for success in college and the
workforce in a competitive global economy.
To learn more about the Common Core Standards, please
