PVUSD has aligned instruction and assessment to the California Common Core State Standards.
This year, PVUSD teachers began participating in professional development on California’s Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These are new academic content standards that address English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics, with ELA standards including literacy standards for content areas.
The Pajaro Valley Unified School District is excited about these new standards which will provide greater learning opportunities for our students. The new standards are designed to be relevant in the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills students need for success in both higher education and career.  
The standards stem from a nationwide initiative to set a clear and consistent progression of learning across all states. In 2010, the California State Board of Education adopted these standards with some additions unique to California. These kindergarten through 12th grade standards provide a progression of knowledge and skills that prepare students to graduate from high school and be ready for college and careers. The standards are research-based and internationally benchmarked.

Parents and guardians are crucial partners in laying the groundwork for a smooth transition to the new standards. Parents and guardians can:
  • Learn about the CCSS and the district’s transition plan.
  • Talk to the principal about the school’s plans for the transition to learn what will be different about these new standards and what will remain the same for children.
  • Attend a board and/or community meeting to discuss district goals and timelines.
  • Meet with your child’s teacher to discuss what your child will be learning over the coming year and how classroom instruction will shift to align to the CCSS.
  • Play an active role in your child’s education at home. If you notice your child is struggling in a certain area, consult with his or her teacher to identify strategies and resources that might be helpful.
  • Educate other parents about the transition to the CCSS.
  • Explore opportunities to become actively involved in the Common Core transition through your state and local Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) or Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
