Common Core

Standards in APS

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.

The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. In addition, implementation of these real world standards is designed with student success as an outcome, thus leading to closing the Achievement Gap and acceleration of student progress.

Implementation of the standards requires that teachers mindfully address instructional shifts and pedagogy and have the content knowledge and critical thinking strategies needed for our diverse student population to be college and career ready.


The TAES staff is dedicated to giving all our students a quality education, and the rigor of the Common Core State Standards will help our staff achieve that goal.  All grade levels will be implementing the Common Core State Standards in language arts and math this school year.  The link below is a great website that allows you to read about the standards’ history, see the states that are using the state standards, and see all of the language arts and math standards from kindergarten through high school.  Also, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher with any questions about Common Core and how it effects your child’s education.
