New California Standards

The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.

The California Department of Education is a great resource for additional information about Common Core Standards.  Please see CDE's interactive timeline for more information about important milestones as we transition to Common Core.  For more information about the new Common Core assessments slated to officially begin in Spring of 2015, please see Smarter Balanced.
