Common Core Language Arts

The Common Core State Standards were adopted by the Connecticut State Board of Education on July 7, 2010.  Since that time, guided by the state of Connecticut’s transition timeline, the Clinton Public Schools English Language Arts Curriculum Renewal Team, all English Language Arts teachers, and content area teachers, have engaged in thoughtful work to transition and align our curriculum resources and instructional methods to meet the Common Core Standards.

The 2013-2014 school year will mark the first year of full implementation of Common Core English Language Arts Standards in the Clinton Public Schools in grades K-12 English Language Arts. 

Information regarding the Common Core Standards can be found below.
