The Common Core State Standards are being phased in during the 2013-2014 school year and will be fully implemented the following year.
While the Common Core State Standards represent a national movement, they are not mandated by the federal government. Each state can decide whether to implement common core. California, which adopted the standards in 2010, is among 45 states that have adopted the standards.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is coordinated by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The standards were developed based on input from teachers, school administrators and education experts. The revised final draft was released in June 2010.
Comparing Old to New
Crosswalks is the term used to compare the old standards to the new common core standards. Please see the files below for crosswalks for English language arts and math. The crosswalks include comparisons for all grades, K-12, so you'll need to scroll through the files to find the grade levels in which you're interested.
