Common Core State Standards
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn. 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 career. With students fully prepared for the future, our community will be best positioned to compete successfully in a global economy. With the right support, we know all students will rise to the expectations outlined by the standards. These standards require the problem solving, critical thinking, and creative analysis expected for college and career success.
The SBCUSD Common Core Plan considers key implementation strategies outlined by the state of California and aligns with the CDE's Systems Implementation Plan. Secondary school leaders are encouraged to read Implementing the Common Core State Standards for more targeted implementation strategies. Additional resources are listed below.
