In nearly every school district across the country, students, teachers, other school staff and families are learning about new K-12 education standards in mathematics and English language arts known as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Recognizing that today’s elementary, middle, and high school students are tomorrow’s college applicants, working professionals, and well-informed citizens, CCSS is a critical step to ensuring that all students – regardless of their zip code or background – are prepared to succeed.

Developed by a coalition of teachers, parents, education experts, and business leaders, CCSS provides a path for what students must learn in math and English language arts at each grade in order to be prepared for college, training and a career. By building understanding and knowledge from grade to grade students will truly understand and master concepts so that they are ready to move forward.
