Wayne County Public Schools will be part of the introduction of the K-2 common core curriculum, to boost student achievement.
It will be used statewide. Students entering K through 2 in September will be assessed using these standards by the time they reach third grade.
Eventually, the common core assessments will be used in K-through-12.
"A high school education or a K-12 education should impact your quality of life," said interim superintendent, Keith Clay. "It should make a difference once you leave that arena to where you're going, whether you're going on to higher ed or whether you're going to go into a skilled job somewhere, your education should impact your future."
Clay said the use of this curriculum involves all aspects of learning, including language arts, math, fine arts, and physical education.
