Common Core Prepares Students for College/Career

The Little Rock School District is committed to helping students develop the broad knowledge and technical skills they need to meet today’s college challenges and workforce demand by adopting Common Core Standards. The Standards were developed through a national collaboration of educators and governors across the country adopting Common Core for grades K-8.

The goal is to improve student achievement in literacy and math. The district, along with many other school districts across the country, will be working to improve teaching and learning to ensure that all children will graduate from high school with the skills they need to be successful. Arkansas is one of 45 states, plus the District of Columbia, that is adopting the new standards voluntarily.

Back-to-School Tips

Whether you’re child is a kindergarten student, an incoming freshman or a confident senior, heading back to school signals a time of transition: new classes, new teachers, new schedules and a new social scene. Hopefully these tips will make the transition from summer to school a bit easier.

Cough Cough, Ahh-Choo! Oh Goodness, what do I do?
