Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels, and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

Parent Guides for the Common Core State Standards
Another great set of resources for the Common Core. The National PTA has released a set of parent guides (specific to grade levels K-8, and then a set for high school). They include excellent information for parents, including focus areas for the year. Well worth checking out.
