Common Core Standards


Common Core State Standards are a progression of skills that students master as they move from transitional kindergarten through high school. The Standards are designed to provide a consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn to ensure they are challenged, make appropriate progress, and prepared for success.  These learning goals help students meet college and career expectations while creating the foundation needed for students to "contribute and thrive in a changing world".  Currently, California has joined 44 other states and adopted the Common Core Standards for mathematics and English language arts.  

Parent Tip: Look through the common core standards below to get a feel for what your child will be learning as they proceed through school.


Here is a list of resources for the new Common Core Standards.
