Guides to Student Success

 

 

The Common Core State Standards (CCSSI) is a joint effort led by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers to develop a common core of K-12 standards in English language arts and Mathematics. Read more about National PTA's position on Education Standards. Watch the Common Core video series for more info.

The goal initiative is to develop internationally-benchmarked standards that ensure all students are held to consistent expectations that will prepare them for college and career.

More than 45 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, American Samoan Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands and the Anchorage, AK School District have adopted the standards.

National PTA Position on Education Standards and Assessments

National PTA volunteers have adopted several position statements and resolutions, beginning in 1981, in support of voluntary, clearer, higher academic standards for all students. National PTA’s position statement on Education Emphasis covers PTA’s position on voluntary standards. National PTA's position statement on Assessment cover's PTA's position on state assessment systems. Specifically, National PTA:

  • Supports nationally agreed upon voluntary standards if they are derived by consensus at the state and local levels. Parents must be involved in this process.
  • Supports state assessment systems that are appropriately aligned with each state's academic standards.
  • Supports annual state assessments for students in math and reading for grades 3-8, once in high school, as well as grade span testing in science.
  • Supports state-determined accountability systems that provide for multiple measures of student growth and achievement.
