The transition to Common Core State Standards is both exciting and challenging. Our purpose in embracing the change is to better serve our students, and to equip them with the communication and problem solving skills they need to be successful in the 21st Century. This will take all of us: the school board, teachers, administrators, custodians, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, secretaries and instructional aides, working together to support the learning we are asking our students to achieve. In order to become the kind of schools district that meets the needs of all students, we need the support and involvement of our parents and community. Become involved! Together, We Are Waterford!
