Garrison Elementary school is in full implementation of new California Common Core Standards. Teachers received quality professional development; the instructional program is shifting to align to the new standards; and students will work in computer labs  labs to facilitate the technical expectations of Common Core.

California is one of 45 states nationwide to adopt the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English/Language Arts and mathematics.   This shift in teaching has been characterized by some as “the most significant change to classroom instruction since 1998,” when California first adopted its own academic standards.  Click the Common Core link above to learn more about the standards and how the Oceanside Unified School District is implementing Common Core in the classroom.
