Common Core State Standards
What You Need to Know
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a set of expectations which detail the knowledge and skills that students must acquire and master in order to be successful. CCSS support students in grades K through 12 and have been implemented in 41 out of the 50 states.
States that are not using CCSS include Alaska, Puerto Rico, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, South Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, and Nebraska. To date, Minnesota has only adopted the English Language Arts standards. Click the button below to read more information about the Common Core State Standards and how they are used.
