Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school.
Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.
Spend a morning with an administrator to find out first hand how the new standards are being implemented and receive a close up on new techniques of teaching. Join us for the luncheon to hear all five superintendents speak about the principals of the standards and how it will change the way students will be prepared for higher education, the work force and competing internationally.
