The Common Core Curriculum is an education initiative in the United States that describes what K-12 students should learn in english and math at the end of each grade level.

The standards initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).  The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were created by a group of people made up of state governors and state heads of education. 

At this time all states but five have adopted these standardsThe objective of the council was to develop a like set of internationally bench-marked standards that would be used and adopted by every state.  All of the states that have adopted the common core curriculum standards are now in the transition phase towards full implementation, which occurs in 2014-2015.

Why are there Common Core Standards?

Common Core Curriculum standards were developed for grades K-12 in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. The standards were written to be rigorous and to prepare students to enter college or the workforce upon graduating from high school.

The original state standards have built a quality foundation for the Common Core State Standards and are the first step in providing our young students with a highest quality education. The common core brings to the forefront what the standards of success should be in every school.
