National PTA Parent's Guide to Student Success



The Parents' Guide to Student Success  was developed in response to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics that more than 40 states have adopted. 

National PTA® created the guides for grades K-8 and two for grades 9-12 (one for English language arts/literacy and one for mathematics).

The Guide includes:

  • Key items that children should be learning in English language arts and mathematics in each grade, once the standards are fully implemented.

  • Activities that parents can do at home to support their child's learning.

  • Methods for helping parents build stronger relationships with their child's teacher.

  • Tips for planning for college and career (high school only).

These roadmaps include examples of grade-level focus in the content, sample progressions of learning across three grade levels in the Common Core, and tips to parents on communicating with teachers about their child's work and how to support student learning at home.
