COMMON CORE RECOMMENDATIONS

Gov. Andrew Cuomo's Common Core Implementation Panel suggests, among other changes:

• Banning standardized "bubble tests" for children in pre-kindergarten through second grade.

• Ensuring that state assessments in English and math for students grades 3 through 8 are not used against them and do not appear on permanent school records.

• Ending inappropriate testing for students with disabilities and English language learners.

• Capping the amount of time schools can use for standardized tests and test preparation.

• Creating a Parents Bill of Rights for Data Privacy to explain clearly why data is being collected by the state and the school, who it is shared with and why.

• Setting procedures for parent notification in case of any data breach.
