Raising the Bar: The Common Core State Standards 

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) describe what students are expected to learn at every grade level in order to be prepared for success in college and careers. Adopted by 46 states, including Illinois, CCSS is designed to be relevant to the real world and help students succeed in a global economy.

 

Chicago Public Schools began the transition to CCSS in 2011-12 and will fully implement in the 2014-15 school year, when the state assessment will also be aligned to assess CCSS.

 

We invite you to learn more about these standards and how CPS is planning to implement them in the coming years.

 

Check out this short video that explains how the Common Core State Standards will help students achieve at high levels and help them learn what they need to know to get to graduation and beyond.
