The Parents’ Guide to Student Success was developed in response to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics that more than Alabama has adopted. Created by teachers, parents, education experts, and others from across the country, the standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career.      

    National PTA® created the guides for grades K-8 (one for English language arts/literacy and one for mathematics).

    The Guide includes:

    • Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade, once the standards are fully implemented.

    • Activities that parents can do at home to support their child's learning.

    • Methods for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child's teacher. 

    Through ongoing curriculum work, teachers at Wylam K-8 will be developing units and assessments to align with the new curriculum in the coming years.
