Nevada Academic Content Standards (NVACS)
With the adoption of the Common Core State Standards in October 2010, they became the Nevada Academic Content Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics. With this action, the Nevada State Board of Education committed to ensuring that all students are ready for college and careers.
The Council of the Great City Schools' parent roadmaps in mathematics provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.***The Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core State Standards may be reprinted or posted online for non-commercial purposes without the Council’s prior consent.

La manera en que enseñábamos a los estudiantes en el pasado simplemente no los prepara para las exigencias mayores del colegio universitario y las profesiones de hoy día y del futuro. Su escuela al igual que las escuelas de todo el país está trabajando para mejorar la enseñanza y el aprendizaje para asegurar que todos los niños se gradúen de la escuela preparatoria (High
School) con las habilidades que necesitan para tener éxito.
The Curriculum Overviews have been developed to help parents understand what is expected of students in each grade level in the core subject areas of English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. It provides a listing of skills and concepts to be taught in each grade level. Tips and activities are also provided to help your child learn at home.
Partners for Achievement
Your child’s achievement depends on a partnership between you and your child’s teacher. Below is information about the CCSD English Language Arts and Mathematics curriculum (both in English and Spanish) resulting from the ongoing implementation of the Nevada Academic Content Standard (NVACS).
