New Common Core State Standards
As you may be aware, California –along with 45 other states, has adopted new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English Language Arts and mathematics. Students will be assessed on the CCSS beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. AUSD will transition grades Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd to the CCSS beginning in the 2013-14 school year as these grades are not part of the current State Testing and Reporting (STAR) program. This transition will require new English Language Arts curriculum as the current adopted materials are not aligned to the CCSS
Jack London Elementary School, in a partnership with home and community, is committed to preparing students to take responsibility for themselves and their own learning. Our mission is to develop the whole child: shaping respectful citizens with a foundation in life skills,communication, problem solving, and basic skills, while instilling self-esteem and a lifelong love of learning in a diverse world.
