CCSS Belief Statements

ASTA believes:

  1. Teachers will decide how to best teach and assess skills and knowledge using their choice of methodology.
  2. Critical thinking skills and inquiry based learning are part of our students’ educational foundation.
  3. Teachers shall have time and support to become proficient with standards and become technologically prepared to support the students taking the new state assessments.
  4. a. We cannot test simply for the sake of testing. Student assessments should be meaningful and valid in their purpose and must be chosen or created by the teacher.
  5. b. The District should focus on curriculum and instruction rather than assessment given the unknowns of SBAC exams.
  6. Teachers must be given opportunities for ongoing high quality professional development, including cross curricular professional development, which is driven and developed by classroom teachers.
  7. Teachers shall have the freedom to take risks in implementing and learning the CCSS without the results being used in the evaluation process.  Students need the support to take risks.
