The California State Board of Education adopted the Common Core standards in 2010. Since that time, West Covina has been working to implement them into our classrooms’ curriculum. These core standards establish consistent and clear educational goals for the entire state to help our students be better prepared for college and career.
Our teachers are utilizing Common Core, along with Essential Standards, to teach our students to think critically and master concepts in a building block style. We believe this will enable them to connect learning to real life.
