About Common Core
The Kindergarten-12 Common Core State Standards (CCSS) represent a set of expectations for student knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in college and careers. CCSS will help ensure that students receive a high quality education consistent, from school to school and state to state. The development of the CCSS was spearheaded by two organizations - the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association.
