What are the Common Core State Standards?
The Common Core State Standards are a set of clear standards for math and English Language Arts that were developed to ensure every student graduates high school prepared for college or the workforce. The standards reflect rigorous learning benchmarks set by countries whose students currently outperform American students on international assessments. For more information, please visit http://www.corestandards.org/
                                                            
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of 22 states plus the U.S. Virgin Islands working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers. (Read More)
