District adopts national learning

OREGON – Oregon School District 220 facilities are using the new Common Core Standards, a set of educational learning standards designed to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn.

Illinois is one of more than 40 states changing to the standards.

Tom Mahoney, Oregon superintendent, said, “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, relevant, and uniform to ensure that students are better prepared for success after graduation.”

Common Core provides a focus for educators on what should be taught at each grade level, but not how they should teach. Teachers will continue to have the freedom to tailor their methods to the individual needs of their students.
