Common Core Information
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative from 2010 that details what K-12 students throughout the United States should know in English Language Arts and mathematics at the conclusion of each school grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce. SLVUSD has curriculum materials and professional development opportunities that are in alignment to the Common Core Standards.
