For Parents:
Understanding the Common Core Standards 


 

The Common Core has increased the rigor and raised expectations for all students.  Our students are being asked to do more reading, writing, and math at an earlier age.  

 

At Fillmore, we are taking a common sense approach to implementing the Common Core Curriculum and NYS instructional modules.  Visit engageny.org for more information.

  • We are adapting the Common Core Standards and materials to make sense for our students.  
  • We are continuing instructional practices that have worked for our students.
  • We are starting an instructional video library on our school web page for teachers and parents.
