Utah Core Standards Parent Guides

Parent's Guide to Student Success

The Parents’ Guide to Student Success (below in English and Spanish) was developed in response to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics that more than 45 states have adopted.  Created by teachers, parents, education experts, and others from across the country, the standards provide clear, consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade in order to be prepared for college and career. Although Utah's core standards are their own, they bear enough resemblance to the Common Core Standards that the parent guides can be very valuable to parents who want to help their children flourish academically with the new state education standards.

In addition, NBC Education Nation has created the Parent Toolkit with Academic Growth Charts to aid parents in helping their children be successful in school.
