What IS Common Core?

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are K-12 standards for English Language Arts (ELA) and Math, and ELA Standards for Literacy in Social Studies, Science & Technical Subjects. They were developed in partnership with universities and the business community to help prepare our students for College & Career. This video presents a general overview of the Common Core State Standards.

What is college & career readiness? 

The Common Core State Standards aim to prepare students to be ready for college and career. This means much more than “getting into college” or getting a job.
