Common Core State Standards Initiative
Preparing America's Students For College and Career
Mission - 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 them. 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. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
Arizona formally adopted the Common Core Standards (attached) June 28, 2010.
