School board talks Common Core

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education discussed student outcome data and received an update on the new Common Core curriculum and the district’s partnership with the Institute for Learning at a work session last week.

Board members heard a presentation from Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Services Magda Parvey about how the new Common Core standards will increase critical-thinking and analytical skills in students, but could make tests more challenging.

The next school board meeting is scheduled for Oct. 4 at Chapel Hill Town Hall.
