Common Core

The Common Core standards clearly communicate what is expected of students at each grade level. Common Core is a real-world approach to learning and teaching, developed by education experts from 45 states; these K-12 learning standards go deeper into key concepts in math and English language arts. The standards require a practical, real-life application of knowledge that prepares students for success in college, work and life.

Common Core provides:
  • Consistent learning expectations for all students.
  • Clear standards that focus on understanding over memorization.
  • Emphasis on the critical topics students need to succeed after high school.
  • Faster testing results with a better, more focused online assessment system.
