In light of the Common Core controversy about keeping students home from school:
Louisiana has adopted the Common Core State Standards along with approximately forty other states. However, Caldwell teachers have written curriculum and assessments used to teach our students. Keeping students home from school will put them a day behind, which accomplishes nothing for our children. All students, Caldwell teachers and other employees are encouraged to attend school because every day is valuable in the learning experience.
