  • Title: Yakima School District - Superintendent
    Descriptive info: Supt's Message.. Supt's Biography.. Our Staff.. We know a multitude of factors contribute to a child s success in school.. Academic success takes dedicated teachers, hardworking administrators, adequate resources, and a rich curriculum.. Parents and caring adults, as their child s first and most important teachers, also play critical roles by supporting their child s academic life.. To do this key job, parents/guardians must know what their children are expected to learn by the end of each year.. The academic standards our students must meet seem to change constantly, vary widely from state to state, and are often misunderstood by teachers and administratorslet alone you as a parent or guardian.. Fortunately, two years ago, state governors from across the country signed on to the Common Core State Standard (CCSS) Initiative.. This initiative establishes a single, clear set of K-12 mathematics and English-Language Arts standards that 46 states have voluntarily adopted.. Drawn from the best models within the U.. and the world, these standards ensure our nation s children will graduate from high school ready for career and/or college.. These standards reflect the collaborative work of educators, researchers, and experts in the business community.. They were intensely scrutinized and informed by thousands of public comments.. Teachers played a key role in the development process from day one, ensuring that the standards  ...   exact same goals.. Parents/guardians can help support their child and school through the implementation of CCSS by reinforcing schoolwork at home.. For example, you will notice in English-Language Arts, the new Core Curriculum focuses on more nonfiction reading passages.. Reading more non-fiction (newspapers, factual reading, magazines, etc.. ) will be an immense help to your children in all grade levels.. The Math Core Curriculum will allow our students to learn math at a more complex level at a younger age.. Even so, math facts continue to be learned best by repetition, through drill and practice.. Raising standards is a doable challenge that will have great payoffs for learning.. With the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), our district will have the opportunity to work toward graduating all Yakima students from school, fully prepared for success in college and careers.. To this end, the Yakima School District is committing resources to training teachers and aligning curriculum.. In return, your child will be ensured a quality education that prepares them for college and/or the competitive job markets of the future.. To learn more about the Common Core State Standards, please visit http://www.. committothecore.. org and http://www.. corestandards.. org/.. Thank you for your support of, and engagement with the Yakima Public Schools.. We are grateful for your partnership.. Elaine Beraza, Superintendent.. Yakima School District..
