Common Core Quick Facts!

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a state-led effort that provide a clear, consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn to be college and career-ready.

 

They are spearheaded by two groups, the National Governor’s Association Center for Best Practices (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CSSO). The common core standards were introduced in 2010 and 45 states and 3 territories have adopted them. In 2014-15, current state tests will be replaced by one of the two exams designed for the common core.

 

The standards define what students should know and be able to do, not how teachers teach. Decades of literacy research should provide the framework for instructional best practices in reading, writing, speaking and listening.
