  • What are CCSS?The goal of the CCS is to help all students become college- and career-ready by the time they leave high school.The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts and mathematics are content standards shared among participating states. They are designed to help ensure that all students are college and career ready in literacy and mathematics no later than the end of high school. Developed as part of the Common Core State Standards initiative, a voluntary state-led effort, this common set of standards describes what students in our nation should know and be able to do. Parents, teachers, school administrators, and experts from across the country, together with state leaders through their membership in the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center), led the effort to develop the standard.

  • What are CCSS?Preparing Oregon Students : When Oregon adopted the Common Core in October 2010, our state joined other states in the pursuit of a common, standards based education for our students, kindergarten through high school. Common standards can increase the likelihood that all students, no matter where they live, are prepared for success in college and the work place. Because skillful reading, writing, language use, and speaking and listening are similar across the states, common standards make sense. They make possible common assessments, common achievement goals for grade level groups, and efficiencies of scale for instructional and professional development materials. Common standards mean that students in Oregon are learning the same thing as students across the country. Students moving into or out of Oregon will have a smoother educational transition because learning goals will now be the same across states. Every student will be introduced to the core standards using I can kid friendly statements. This will help students get a clear understanding of what they are learning, etc. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s0rRk9sER0&safe=active
