We are opposed to the adoption of Common Core Standards. We believe that the adaptation of the Graded Course of Study to these college and career-ready standards are in direct opposition to the mission of Catholic education. We, therefore ask the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to immediately
1. halt the implementation of the standards and evaluate their merit over time
2. hold town hall sessions to engage parents and educators to discuss the weaknesses of the standards and address parental concerns
3. consider the removal of curriculum in "alignment" with the CCSS and re-evaluate the GCS
