Common Core Standards

Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were drafted by experts and teachers from across the country and are designed to ensure students are prepared for today’s entry-level careers, freshman-level college courses, and workforce training programs. The Common Core focuses on developing the critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills students will need to be successful. CCSS also provide a way for teachers to measure student progress throughout the school year and ensure that students are on the pathway to success in their academic careers. Click the links below to read more about CCSS for English language arts and mathematics.
