The introduction of new standards gives SFUSD an opportunity to better define a coherent, focused, and rigorous math curriculum. The new standards focus on students learning more deeply the processes of math. All schools in SFUSD are expected to fully implement the CCSS-M in the 2014-2015 school year and we are well on our way. Learn more here.

Changes in Assessing Student Learning

There are some exciting changes going on in SFUSD this year! As you may have heard, the district is transitioning from the old California State Standards to the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Standards list expectations for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. The new standards are more challenging than previous standards and will better prepare students for success in college and career in the 21st century. The new standards will affect teaching and learning, report cards, and assessment.
