Has your state adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? Check out the image below. The states in green have already adopted the CCSS.

If you click on the link, it will take you to the Common Core State Standards Initiative webpage.  You can click on your state to see when you can expect full implementation of the standards in your state. 

The next step would be to visit the Department of Education website for your state.  Many states have provided a plethora of information on their implementation process. To see what is happening on both coasts, I am providing a link to California and Maine’s Department of Education websites. Click on the images to access.

If you are a parent, this article called, What Parents Need to Know is from the CCSS Initiative website. It is a good reference. 

Parents and Teachers, did you know the PTA has resources too? The California State PTA website has resources that include:

  • parent guide to success
  • links to SBAC practice tests
  • articles of interest
  • links to other resources.
