Wisconsin's Adoption of the Common Core State Standards

 

Since 2010, 45 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a set of consistent English language arts and mathematics expectations for what students should know and be able to do in kindergarten through 12th grade.  Each state made its local decision to adopt after opportunities to review drafts and voice feedback.  Wisconsin was well poised to adopt the CCSS in June of 2010, leveraging the involvement of statewide English language arts and mathematics educator leadership teams in the review process, and gaining statewide support through multiple stakeholder events held in the spring of 2010.

The CCSSI team has identified and/or developed multiple valuable resources to assist in planning for standards-based instruction at the local level.
