After 24 years in the K-12 education space, Achieve has shut its doors. Read the statement from Michael Cohen, President of Achieve here.
Our website www.achieve.org will remain available through December 31, 2020.
Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
For implementation of the Common Core State Standards to succeed, parent support is key. At the same time, the shift to higher standards is a big change that can be difficult to fully understand. In order to help parents feel prepared and equipped to support their child’s learning under the new standards, CCSS advocates have developed several helpful video resources. These great resources will help ease the transition for parents so that they can both understand and support student learning beyond the classroom.

Vox takes a look at why Common Core math may look different from the way that parents remember learning – and why the emphasis on “understanding of how numbers can be broken down into units of smaller numbers” can ultimately help students.
In addition to video testimonials from Teachers of the Year, this site offers parents “help with math homework, tips on reading, answers about the new state tests being implemented in most states, what your child should know grade by grade, and much more, from trusted partners who have been working with parents and students for decades.”
