What are the Common Core State Standards?
  • The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) represent
    a set of expectations for student
    knowledge and skills necessary to succeed
    in college and careers. CCSS will
    help ensure that students receive a
    high quality education consistent, from school
    to school and state to state. The
    development of the CCSS was spearheaded by two
    organizations - the Council of Chief
    State School Officers and the National Governors
  • The criteria used to develop the CCSS were
  • Aligned with college and work expectations
  • Include rigorous content and application of
    knowledge through high-order skills
  • Build upon strengths and lessons of current state
  • Informed by top-performing countries, so that all
    students are prepared to succeed in our global
    economy and society
  • Evidence and/or research-based.
  • More information can
    be found at http//www.sausd.us/commoncore

  • All students need to be responsible for their own
  • Students are expected to write their homework in
    their agenda. All boxes should be filled on
    a daily basis. Please check the agendas
    regularly to be aware of what assignments
    are due. If there is no homework, there should
    be something written about what was done in class
    or an X in the space.
  • Assignments are due at the beginning of class,
    and will be considered late if they are not ready
    to be turned in at that time. Any late
    assignments will not receive full credit. All
    assignments should be neatly prepared and have
    the students name, date, period written in the
    upper right-hand corner.
  • Every other week, we will be going to the
    library, where the students will be checking out
    books based on their AR levels. There is a link
    on the Santiago homepage to take them directly to
    the AR website where they can sign in with the
    student ID number. If they do not have computer
    access at home, they may go to the library before
    or after school to take the AR test. They will
    also have access to laptops in the classroom
    during their free time.
  • This will be a
    requirement toward their reading grade.

  • http//www.sausd.us/Page/8274

  • Students have the opportunity to earn the
    following points for
  • completed work. Points are deducted for work that
    is turned
  • in late or not completed correctly.
  • Homework 20 points
  • Class Work 50 points
  • Projects 100 Points
  • Essays Tests 100 points
  • Any assignments not turned in shall receive a
    score of zero, negatively affecting the students
    overall performance grade in the class.
  • You may access your students grades anytime by
    going to the Aeries Student Portal through the
    Santiago homepage resources tab.
