Overview - CCSS

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are intended to supplement the current standards, as well as ensure that your student leaves school with the real-world skills and knowledge that he or she needs to succeed in college and/or career.
The nine schools in the Point Loma Cluster coordinated on the development of an informational website for parents, staff, and students. The website was designed for two purposes.
  • Help parents in navigating all things Common Core and help prepare students at school and at home for the changes that are occurring in our students education.
  • Provide educators with resources in order to facilitate conversation and instruction around the Common Core.
The left hand side of this page is organized in a way to meet both purposes. Parents will find:
  • FAQs for Parents
  • What parents can do at home
  • CCSS practice problems
  • Student resources
  • CCSS informational videos
The whole site is accessible to both parents and educators. The website will be updated as changes and or materials related to the Common Core become accessible.
