• Welcome to “Common Core Insights” a new addition to our website intended to provide our community with information and resources about the newly adopted Common Core Curriculum. You may have already noticed that the work your student is bringing home may look different than what you’re familiar with, that’s because this new curriculum IS different. There are new ways of doing math problems, students are reading and re-reading texts to analyze and critique different points of view. All of these changes are intended to develop the skills required to become independent, successful adults in tomorrow’s workplace. The Canisteo-Greenwood School District recognizes that a critical component of student success is family and community support. This section of our website is intended to provide you with information and resources to help you gain a better understanding of what the Common Core is all about, along with ideas and methods on how to support your student’s growth. Should you have any questions or concerns on how best to support your student, please contact their teacher.  Together, we can succeed in preparing all students for the challenges of the 21stcentury.
