Common Core State Standards

California is one of the 45 states that has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Math and Language Arts.  Along with all the schools in the state, Fuente Nueva is in the process of making the transition to these standards.  As a Spanish immersion school we are thrilled that the language arts standards have been translated for the Spanish language in an effort to promote bilingual education.  The new standards are a welcome change as Fuente Nueva has already incorporated much of the teaching philosophy that drove their adoption.  Parents can learn more about this national initiative through a comprehensive collection of resources put together by the Humboldt County Office of Education.
