Moving forward in Washington with the Common Core State Standards
The Common Core State Standards:
Who developed Common Core?
* Minnesota adopted the CCSS in ELA only
Consistent learning expectations
Clear standards, deeper understanding
Critical skills for the job market
WA adopted Common Core because these standards and the aligned teaching resources and tests will help students be better prepared for college and work. Currently in Washington:
2011: Washington officially adopts Common Core.
2012: OSPI provides toolkits to teachers and schools to start implementing standards.
2013: Schools pilot of new tests in math and English language arts.
2013-14: Common Core standards are taught in every school in Washington.
2014-15: Students take new tests aligned to the Common Core.
Will schools and teachers still have control over teaching materials and other local decisions?
If we raise learning expectations, will the test be harder, too?
Do people in WA support Common Core?
Ready Washington is a coalition of state and local education agencies, associations and advocacy organizations that support college- and career-ready learning standards. The coalition believes all students should be better prepared for college, work and life to build the skills to compete for the quality jobs that our state has to offer.
