In 2011, Washington state adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), which aim to develop common learning expectations for K-12 students across the country. Most states have begun implementing CCSS. Instead of each state having its own learning standards, CCSS align the standards among all the participating states. Drawn from the best models within the U.S. and the world, these standards help ensure CPSD students will graduate from high school ready for college and/or a career.
The Common Core State Standards establish consistent goals for what students will learn in each grade. The standards are the same throughout the states that have adopted CCSS. Comparable learning expectations for all students, no matter where they live, promote equity in education, and ensure that all students are prepared to succeed in college and the workforce.
Clover Park School District has been working to adopt CCSS since the 2012-13 school year. An implementation timeline is listed below.
