Parent Engagement Opportunities: Common Core Math

Friday, November 21st, 2014 - Posted in All District News

Background

Last year, the PUSD Board of Education approved a plan for the multi-year implementation of Common Core (CC) Math, starting with new middle school math courses in 2014/15.  PMS is now offering three new courses: CC 6, CC7 and CC8.  Students who were enrolled in Intro to Algebra through Calculus AB during the 2013/14 school year are continuing in the 1997 California Math Standards pathways, and are not affected by the implementation of Common Core Math.  (Please refer to the District’s Common Core Math FAQ for more background information)

Later this school year, the Board will adopt the next phase of Common Core math implementation.  To inform decisions around this next phase, the Board created a Math Task Force (MTF) consisting of math teachers, parents, students, and administrators.  The MTF is charged with considering and recommending options for math courses and math pathways in middle and high school.

PUSD has developed a timeline for future parent engagement opportunities on Common Core Math:
