Three years ago, Rhode Island teachers began preparing to use the Common Core State Standards in their work with our students. The Common Core standards are designed to ensure that students – regardless of their state of residence - leave a particular grade level with the same set of skills. I am pleased to share that this year, the standards are fully implemented in schools all over the state.

Last week, we released our complete report on the October 2013 NECAP test administration. I am pleased to share that a number of schools and LEAs have made significant improvements in both mathematics and reading over the past five years.

Students and teachers alike are anticipating a wonderful holiday season, and across our state schools are humming with activity as learning continues right up to the holiday vacation. Of course, while families prepare to celebrate the holidays, it’s important to remember that “learning never takes a vacation.”
