Dear Parents,

During the past three years, New York has joined more than forty states across the country to implement more rigorous and challenging standards in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science and Technology.   As I have shared with you previously, the Common Core Standards was developed based on research of top-performing countries around the world.  The standards describe the important skills and knowledge that our students will need in order to succeed in a rapidly changing digital society.  The new standards provide PS/IS 171 with an exceptional opportunity to implement new and exciting educational materials and strategies during the 2013-2014 school year.
