Georgia has adopted the Common Core State Standards along with 47 other states across the nation.  The development of national standards for K-12 English Language Arts and Mathematics was initiated by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). These standards provide a consistent framework to prepare students for success in college and career. The standards can be viewed on the Common Core State Standards website or on the Georgia Department of Education website

The Parents Guide to Success was developed by the National PTA in response to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics. 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 and two for grades 9-12 (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.

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

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

Tips for planning for college and career (high school only).
