The Common Core Toolkit for Parents and Families
is a collection of materials and resources that will help parents and
families understand the New York State Common Core implementation.
We encourage schools and districts to leverage these resources when
reaching out to parents on this important work.
In particular, the link below includes everything
needed to plan a training or series of trainings to help parents
understand college readiness and the Common Core standards. The
links on this page include planning tools, documents, and agendas to
help prepare for and execute a successful Common Core parent night.

are asking school counselors to propose a new APPR rubric and/or SLOs.
