Report Card 
Pennsylvania adopted the Common Core State Standards on July 2, 2010.

The Parents’ Guides to Student Success were created by National PTA in partnership with experts on the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI).

More than 40 states have adopted the Standards, which were created by teachers, parents, education experts and others from across the country.  The Standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning in each grade in order to be prepared for college and career. 

PTA has been a leader on this work since 2009 when the work began in eight states to support the adoption and implementation of the standards.


This week, State and Local PTA Presidents in states that have adopted or provisionally adopted the standards will be receiving a set of the Guides. 

There is a guide for each grade, K-8, and two guides for high school – one for English and one for math(11 total).

The Guides provide the following:

   1. Key items that children should be learning in English and math in each grade, once the standards are fully implemented; 

   2. activities parents can do at home to support their child’s learning; 

   3. questions and topics parents can use to build stronger relationships with teachers; 

   4. and tips for college and career planning (high school only). 

The Guides are available in English and Spanish online at www.pta.org/parentsguides

While many states have adopted the Standards already, we are still in the very early stages of the implementation process.  This means that the standards are not yet in place at the district or school level.

As the Standards are implemented, PTAs can play a pivotal role in supporting their implementation at the state and district levels.

PTAs are encouraged to start having conversations with their State Departments of Education and their school district administrators about how PTA can partner with them on the implementation of the Standards.  They can also start educating parents about their role in supporting CCSSI.

“By providing these one-of-a-kind guides to families, we’re fulfilling the legacy of PTA. We’re empowering parents to stay ahead of the curve and take action for their children’s success,”; said PTA President Chuck Saylors.
