California State Standards
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed through an initiative led by multiple states to establish consistent standards for English-Language Arts and mathematics. The CCSS provide a clear vision of what educators and parents in all states should aim for in students’ preparation for their future. These learning goals help ensure that students meet college and work expectations, are prepared to succeed in a global economy and society, and are provided with rigorous content and application of higher knowledge thinking.
