Dear Lammersville Unified Families,
The attached link is to an article from Ed Source (EdSource provides information, analysis, and research findings about education- http://edsource.org/about-edsource). It gives a comprehensive overview of the challenges districts are facing in making the transition to the Common Core era in the area of curriculum. Starting last week and continuing into early December our Ed Services team is sending out a series of three webisodes that give an update about how LUSD is attempting to meet this challenge. There will also be a series of Common Core family math nights presented for each individual school community in December as well. The goal of the family math nights is to show parents some of the changes Common Core is bringing to their children’s math experience.
All of our schools are closed next week. Hope you and your families have a nice break and a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Dr. Kirk Nicholas
