Common Core Curriculum Preparation:
On August 2, 2010 the State Board of Education adopted the California Common Core Standards. Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, these new national standards will replace our current state standards. Chino Valley USD teachers are working on Rigorous Curriculum Design in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science to ensure that the education in Chino Valley USD is the best education for our students.
The changes are being driven by three important reforms:
- The Common Core State Standards, adopted by California in August 2010, and the Next Generation Science Standards, adopted in September 2013;
- Assembly Bill 484, passed in September 2013, introducing a new statewide assessment system to replace the Standardized Testing and Reporting System (STAR); and
- the change in California's school finance system, signed by Governor Brown in July 2013.
