A Guide to Common Core Implementation: White Paper

The Common Core State Standards initiative aims to improve student readiness for college and careers through establishing new curriculum standards in language arts and mathematics. The initiative was launched in 2009, sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The majority of states have signed on to adopt Common Core State Standards, with implementation times phased through 2016. As the ACT, SAT and GED exams are aligning to Common Core curricula, even schools that are not adopting these standards may find the need to adjust their educational content in order to give students the best chance of success on college entrance exams.
