Common Core/Essential Standards Information for Parents
North Carolina has adopted the Common Core State Standards in K-12 Mathematics as well as English Language Arts. In all other K-12 content areas the North Carolina Essential Standards have been adopted. These new standards will go into effect beginning in the 2012-2013 school year. Teachers and administrators at CHS embrace these new standards, and believe that they will provide a framework which will enable students to flourish in the 21st century global world. Below you will find a brochure and letter that explain these new standards in more detail. Please feel free to call the school with any questions you may have about the new standards. As with any implementation, we know that parent support and involvement are key, and we appreciate these efforts.
