Common Core

The Common Core State Standards and Career and College Readiness

Common Core Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be relevant and robust, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our students need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

PTA Sponsored Parent Guide to the Common Core

New standards, called Common Core State Standards, are on the way for all students in California, beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. These standards set high expectations for all students. They are rigorous and internationally benchmarked; research- and evidence-based; aligned with college and career expectations; and they build on the foundation laid by individual states. The aim of this state-led initiative is to develop standards that ensure all students are held to consistent expectations that will prepare them for college and career."
