State Updates on Adoption of Common College- and Career-Ready Standards

In the spring of 2009, the Common Core State Standards Initiative was launched with forty-eight states, the District of Columbia, and two territories coming together under the auspices of the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers to develop a common core of state K–12 English language arts and mathematics standards. The standards will be college and career ready; internationally benchmarked; consistent for all students; focused, clear, and coherent; and based on the collaborative work of states and districts along with leading subject matter experts, K–12 teachers, postsecondary faculty, and others.
