As we enter the beautiful summer months, students and families alike are looking forward to having some fun. Fortunately, there are a number of fun and educational opportunities available to them through the Summer Reading Program!

Three years ago, Rhode Island teachers began preparing to use the Common Core State Standards in their work with our students. The Common Core standards are designed to ensure that students – regardless of their state of residence - leave a particular grade level with the same set of skills. I am pleased to share that this year, the standards are fully implemented in schools all over the state.

Last week, we released our complete report on the October 2013 NECAP test administration. I am pleased to share that a number of schools and LEAs have made significant improvements in both mathematics and reading over the past five years.
