Parents Guides to the Common Core

  • Illinois adopted the Common Core State Standards in 2010 and they were incorporated into instruction across the state during the 2013-14 school year. Find out how you can support your child in kindergarten through 12th grade by reading the roadmaps produced by the Council of the Great City Schools. The roadmaps are available in English and Spanish for English Language Arts and Mathematics, the two subjects covered by the Common Core.
