About Common Core State Standards

  

 

Why were they adopted?


In 2010, the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) recognized the opportunity to clearly define the knowledge and skills that will prepare students for the 21st century workplace and will ensure students are truly college and career ready.  Leveraging the expertise and experience of educators across 48 states was crucial to developing strong standards that meet the needs of all students. Working with state partners on the implementation of the CCSS also helps us to learn from one another, share free and available resources, and support students as they move from state to state.


The CCSS provide this guidance and support, while still maintaining the local control so important to districts throughout the state.  Since 2010, Wisconsin has begun to link this system of CCSS, instruction and assessment to school accountability measures, educator effectiveness, and accountability for pre-service educator preparation programs. The CCSS provide the foundation for all of these important systems statewide.  Additionally, the CCSS provide a framework to Wisconsin educators for research-based instructional practices that will truly transform student learning.  This is a significant opportunity for our state.
