Common Core

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) is a set of learning goals designed to benefit and enrich students by setting fewer, clearer, and deeper standards and expectations, working grade-by-grade, step-by-step to put students on the path to graduate prepared for both college and a career.  The standards require a greater use of analysis, critical thinking and real-world skills.

Local districts are in their first year of full implementation of the Common Core State Standards; however, teachers and districts have been working since 2010 to prepare to successfully engage students in deeper learning and higher expectations set by the new standards and are prepared to help ensure the success of students under Common Core.
