State Supt. Addresses Standard Course of Study for New Year

Dear LEA Superintendents, PIOs, Principals and Education Associations,

We have heard from a number of local educators who have concerns about what is supposed to be taught in the 2014-15 school year since the legislature passes its legislation to study the Common Core State Standards with an eye to possible revisions or changes.

State Superintendent June Atkinson has recorded a video to explain that the current Standard Course of Study – including the Common Core – continues to be in place and how the review will be done.

That video is online for you now at ncpublicschools.org under Highlights. I hope this is helpful to you as you begin a new school year.
