Common Core State Standards

Common Core State Standards

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were researched, written and developed by professional educators and education experts from across the United States and agreed upon in 2010 through a state led initiative by the National Governor's Association (NGA) and Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). Florida's State Board of Education voluntarily adopted the CCSS in 2010 followed by more than 40 states in 2011. The CCSS provide clear educational standards, while allowing local districts and schools the flexibility needed to deliver quality instruction in the classroom. The standards, which are not to be confused with curriculum or instruction, are designed to ensure all students, regardless of demography, graduate high school prepared to enter college or the workforce. Moreover, the standards are internationally benchmarked and provide our students with an edge in the global jobs market by ensuring mastery of knowledge and skills needed to perform today's high-skill, high-wage occupations. The Department strongly supports the full implementation of CCSS in the 2014-15 school year and is focused on providing local districts the support needed for a successful transition to CCSS .
