Master List for S



This list contains a notation for every homeschool-related entity I have researched. Company and/or product names are shown according to the standard process for alphabetizing (i.e., if a title starts with A or The, the article is excluded for alphabetizing purposes, and names of individual people are listed by Last Name, First Name).

I strongly recommend carefully reading all notes when considering any of the products. But to summarize my definitions for clarity here:

Independent (IND) = These companies have not changed anything in regards to the CCS/NGSS/C3 and intend to remain independent of the initiative. They may or may not know of ways in which their materials happen to somehow match some aspects of the CCS/NGSS/C3, but any such connections are purely circumstantial and the providers do not endorse/promote the initiative.

Correlated (COR) = Each of these companies is correlated to - which is different than explicit alignment with - the CCS/NGSS/C3. Correlated providers did not make content changes in order to become "aligned" and, in many cases, have indicated concerns with the initiative. However, they do note (usually on their websites) where/how their materials - as written - correlate with aspects of the CCS/NGSS/C3. In other words, they promote where/how they match the CCS/NGSS/C3, but have not actually changed their content to align.

Ancillary Connections (ANC) = Each of these companies has an ancillary connection to the CCS/NGSS/C3. In most cases, the publishers have indicated a preference for maintaining educational independence from the CCS/NGSS/C3 initiative. However, their resources - usually "package programs" - do incorporate some books from explicitly aligned publishers and/or links to explicitly aligned material from other sources. Thus, a child using a resource with an ancillary connection as designed (i.e., without purposeful substitutions made by a parent) will be exposed to some CCS/NGSS/C3 content.

Explicitly Aligned (EXP) = These companies have indicated that they have chosen to explicitly align their materials with the CCS/NGSS/C3. Some have made relatively small changes, and others have completely overhauled their products - or were even initially created based on the initiative. However, in all cases, conscious content changes were made to accommodate the CCS/NGSS/C3.

Other Responses (OTH) = Each of these companies either needs more time to formulate an official response, has indicated that it will only share its position with individual parents, is not interested in sharing its view at all, or did not respond after many attempts to elicit a reply. Check the list itself for details about each entity.

Awaiting a Response (WAIT) = Each of these companies has been queried, but has not yet sent a reply.

Suppliers/Distributors (SUP) = Unless otherwise noted, these companies do not publish any of their own materials or actually produce curriculum and educational products. Instead, they merely sell resources from a wide variety of other outlets, serving as suppliers/distributors. As such, they have not been queried in regard to the CCS/NGSS/C3. And to my knowledge, they all sell a wide variety of materials – whether independent, correlated, ancillarily connected, or explicitly aligned – without regard to any resource's CCS/NGSS/C3 status.

NOTES
Sabbath Mood Homeschool COR

The CCS/NGSS “do not drive the content of” Sabbath Mood Homeschool. The author “make[s] the science study guides based on the living book [she is] using, and then when [she is] through, [she goes] through the list of standards and check[s] off what was covered.” She shows correlations for those in charter/virtual public schools who use her materials and feels that “[c]overing [the CCS and NGSS] and supporting them are two vastly different things.”

IND The Sassafras Science activity guides suggest the use of some correlated – not explicitly aligned – supplementary books (i.e., DK, Kingfisher). And Elemental Science's high school program incorporates explicitly aligned resources. However, the Sassafras Science novels themselves are independent of the CCS.
Saxon Grammar and Writing

COR Hake Publishing, the original creators of Saxon Grammar and Writing, advertises how its program correlates to the CCS.
Saxon Homeschool IND

COR

Saxon Homeschool products are distributed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH). However, though HMH generally promotes the CCS, Saxon Phonics & Spelling and Saxon Physics are independent of the CCS, while Saxon Grammar & Writing, Saxon Math K-8, and Saxon Math 9-12 are independent and correlated. Each specific product line is listed separately for clarity's sake; please refer to the note for each for details.
Saxon Math K-8

(Saxon Homeschool)

IND
COR
Saxon Math K-8 was originally produced by Saxon Publishers and was completed by authors Nancy Larson and Stephen Hake in 2004, well before the advent of the CCS. The primary titles for the homeschool version are Math K, Math 1, Math 2, and Math 3. The middle grades titles are Math 5/4, Math 6/5, Math 7/6, and Math 8/7, all of which are softcover. Though the books are now distributed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) and despite HMH's practice of labeling subsequent re-printings as new “editions,” Larson and Hake still maintain full control over the content of the textbooks and teacher's editions, and they have not allowed any changes to the contents of any of the homeschool books since they were first published.

Saxon Math for schools is the Harcourt Achieve 2008 and 2009 edition. The K-2 titles are unchanged from the earlier editions, but some (non-CCS related) content changes were made; additionally, titles for the other books were changed (to Intermediate 3, 4, 5 for Grades 3-5 and Course 1, 2, 3 for Grades 6-8). Then in 2012, HMH created supplemental materials (separate from the textbooks themselves) to correlate the K-8 material to the CCS. HMH also advertises that all of Saxon Math K-12 “provides deep, long-term mastery of the content and skills called for in the Common Core State Standards.”

Saxon Math 9-12

(Saxon Homeschool)

IND
COR
According to Stephen Hake, who wrote many of the Saxon Math K-8 titles and knows the history of the “Saxon Math story,” John Saxon's original high school books for homeschool - hardcover textbooks titled Algebra 1/2, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Advanced Math, and Calculus (all with the traditional covers) - are still the same versions originally published by Saxon Publishers in 2004 and earlier. Though the books are now distributed by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) and despite HMH's practice of labeling subsequent re-printings as new “editions,” there have been no changes to the contents of any of the original homeschool textbooks since they were published.

Saxon Math for schoolsincluding new high school books in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 - is the Harcourt Achieve 2008 and 2009 edition, none of which were authored by John Saxon, who died in 1996, even though they carry the Saxon imprint. However, even these books were completed before the advent of CCS, so the textbooks and teacher's editions were not created to align. That said, HMH has published detailed correlation guides for the K-8 titles and does advertise that all of Saxon Math K-12 “provides deep, long-term mastery of the content and skills called for in the Common Core State Standards.”

Saxon Phonics & Spelling

(Saxon Homeschool)

IND Though Saxon Phonics & Spelling and other Saxon Homeschool products are sold under the auspices of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which supports the CCS, Saxon Phonics & Spelling is independent of the initiative because the program has a pre-CCS (1998) copyright and has not been revised since its initial publication.
Saxon Physics

(Saxon Homeschool)

IND Though Saxon Physics and other Saxon Homeschool products are sold under the auspices of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, which supports the CCS, Saxon Physics is independent of the initiative because the program has a pre-CCS (1995) copyright and has not been revised since its initial publication.
Saylor Academy EXP Saylor Academy has actively supported alignment to the CCS since 2013.

Schlessinger Media IND

Schlessinger Media products are sold via Library Video Company, which also distributes DVDs for several other companies. Some of the other companies have products which are correlated to or explicitly aligned with the CCS, but Schlessinger Media resources remain independent of the initiative.

Schola Classical Tutorials IND
Schola Rosa Co-Op & Home Curriculum IND
Scholars Online IND ANC Scholars Online is committed to maintaining its distinctive approach to classical Christian education and has no interest in aligning with the CCS. It does utilize textbooks from mainstream publishers, most of which have now aligned, but the publication dates of most of its required textbook editions pre-date the CCS. We did, however, note the inclusion of a 2011 biology book published by Benjamin Cummings (a Pearson subsidiary) and a 2010 physics book by McGraw-Hill. We do not know if those particular texts have been aligned, but both parent companies are strong CCS proponents. Additionally, the aligned Geometer's Sketchpad is required for the Scholars Online geometry course, and several Scholars Online courses are AP. AP courses are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, but it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. Thus, in order to maintain College Board approval, the Scholars Online AP classes will have to make related changes as well.
Scholastic EXP Scholastic was given grant money from the Gates Foundation for the purpose of aligning with the CCS and promotes its alignment; additionally, a search for “common core” on Scholastic's main website shows over 5,000 aligned items.
Scholé Academy ANC Scholé Academy is a program operated by Classical Academic Press, which has some ancillary connections to the CCS.

Seton Home Study IND Seton utilizes Modern Curriculum Press (MCP) for some math, geography, and vocabulary. However, it currently uses editions from 1994, 2003, and 2005, which are not CCS-aligned (aligned versions would be copyrighted 2010 or later). Additionally, Seton suggests some aligned materials – from Math-U-See and Spectrum – as math “supplements,” but none are required for actual course completion.
Seussville (Random House) COR Seussville is a Random House resource, and Random House is a subsidiary of Penguin Random House. Random House has not changed the content of its literature to align, but it has created educator guides to correlate its books to the CCS, and Seussville has advertised correlations to the CCS via its Read Across America program.
Sevenstar Academy OTH

ANC

Sevenstar Academy opted not to provide information to me, indicating instead a desire to speak only with individual parents about its position relative to the CCS/NexGen.

However, we do know that Sevenstar Academy does offer Advanced Placement (AP) classes. And, though AP classes are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, the AP classes offered by Sevenstar Academy will have to make related changes as well.

Shormann Math IND

ANC

Some Shormann Math courses are Advanced Placement (AP), which has ancillary connections with the CCS. Though not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses, it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, Shormann Math's AP prep classes may have to make related changes as well.

Stand to Reason (Brett Kunkle) IND
Standard Deviants Accelerate (Cerebellum Corporation) IND

ANC

Some Standard Deviants classes are Advanced Placement (AP), which has ancillary connections with the CCS. But non-AP Standard Deviants material is independent of the initiative.

In terms of the program's AP preparation courses, AP classes are not directly covered by the CCS because they are the equivalent of freshmen-level college courses. But it's worth noting that all AP classes must be approved by the College Board and that the College Board is in the process of changing AP courses and tests to “reconcile” AP with the CCS. In order to maintain College Board approval, the AP classes offered by Standard Deviants will have to make related changes as well.
