California Common Core State Standards

The California Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were adopted by the California State Board of Education on August 2, 2010, following rigorous review and augmentation by the California Academic Content Standards Commission. The goal of the Common Core State Standards is to better prepare students with the skills necessary for success in college and careers. The standards provide a clear and consistent definition of what students are expected to learn in each grade level and define the knowledge and skills that high school graduates need to master. The standards focus on rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher order thinking skills and real life application.

Riverside County Office of Education offers a variety of trainings and resources to assist local districts with implementation of the California Common Core State Standards.
