Parent/Guardian Resources for Remote Learning

Based on research, the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) has released guidance identifying priority instructional content that should be the focus for all students, in Mathematics and English Language Arts, in grades K-8.  This instructional content represents the topics and standards that are most important because knowledge and skills from one grade must be acquired in order for students to have the foundation necessary to be successful in the next.  These skills are referred to as a learning progressions.  Below you will find links to family guides for Mathematics and English Language Arts, in grades K-8.  These guides describe what students should know and be able to do by the end of each grade-level, and they include everyday activities to support learning, tips for talking to your child’s teacher, along with online tools and resources. They also define important education words for parents.  We hope that you will find these resources to be informative and useful.

Remote Learning Platforms

Teachers have spent time preparing students to engage in remote instruction, using Zoom and Google Meet.  This has included practice with logging in and using the associated tools on their devices.  You may be new to these platforms!  There are a great many videos available that can help you as you navigate these platforms, and I have included a few here for reference.
