COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS

What is the Common Core State Standards Initiative?

 

The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort that established a single set of clear educational standards for kindergarten through 12th grade in English language arts and mathematics that 45 states have voluntarily adopted.  The standards are designed to ensure that students graduating from high school are college or career ready.  The standards are clear and concise to ensure that parents, teachers, and students have a clear understanding of the expectations in reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and mathematics in school.  Moreover, the standards are internationally benchmarked and provide our students with an edge in the global jobs market by ensuring mastery of knowledge and skills needed to perform today's high-skill, high-wage occupations.
