SFUSD Enrollment season is upon us! This Friday, letters go out to students and families letting them know which schools they can enroll in in this fall. Now that my girls are in the 3rd grade, it is easy to forget the anxiety and worry that many parents are currently feeling. They say: "Hindsight is 20-20." With that in mind, I thought I'd take a moment to provide some perspective for parents who may be nervous right now.
I am so excited about math lately! I just learned about some great resources highlighted on the PBS Education site for teachers! Check out the new Math Is AweSum! collection which includes resources from Math at the Core (middle school Common Core State Standards (CCSS) aligned math resources), and Khan Academy (for grade 3-12), and more.
Next year will be the first year that SFUSD will implement a NEW course sequence aligned with the new Common Core State Standards in Math (CCSS-M). SFUSD Commissioner Rachel Norton identified a key question on parents minds, "Is the rigor students need going to be represented in the new course sequence?" This is a good question. Nonetheless, I believe there is a more important conversation going on.
