The California Common Core Standards

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards.

Since 2010, a number of states across the nation have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the CCSS to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.

The Museum of Tolerance

The Museum of Tolerance is a partner to schools in advancing anti-bias education, inclusion, and equity through unique professional development programs. Set in the immersive, high-tech learning environment of the Museum of Tolerance, participants are challenged to examine the Holocaust in both historic and contemporary contexts, confront all forms of prejudice and discrimination, and assume responsibility for positive change. Every program features innovative methods to promote self-reflection, critical thinking, and action planning.

Las Lomitas Elementary School District has been fortunate to receive grant funding to send more than 100 participants made up of teachers, administrators, board members, classified staff, and parent and community stakeholders to attend workshops at the Museum in Beverly Hills.  This work is helping us  to increase our own individual awareness and knowledge in the areas of equity and diversity.  Using what we learn at the Museum, our goal is to build upon our strengths as we enhance district relationships and culture.MOT Group Pic Sept.jpg
