The vision of Lebanon CUSD 9 is:
Lebanon CUSD #9 will be hosting a Common Core Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, October 30th beginning at 6:00pm in the High School Commons Area. Susan Sarfaty our St. Clair County Regional School Superintendent and the Lebanon Administration will be on hand to present information and answer questions. Our hope is to open communication about the new curriculum movement in education.
Illinois joined more than 40 states in a collaborative effort to raise learning standards and improve college and career readiness for all students, regardless of where they live. The new Common Core State Standards establish clear expectations for what students should learn in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level. The standards are high, clear, and uniform to ensure that students are prepared for success in college and the workforce. By emphasizing depth, the Common Core ensures that students have comprehensive understanding of key concepts. Illinois adopted the Common Core in 2010 and teachers and administrators across the state fully implemented the new standards during the 2013-14 school year.
Additional Common Core material is available on our district website under the “For Parents” tab. We hope to see you on Thursday, October 30th.
