Nov. 19th- Common Core Standards
Since 2010, 45 states and the District of Columbia have adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a set of consistent English language arts and mathematics expectations for what students should know and be able to do in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Each state made its local decision to adopt after opportunities to review drafts and voice feedback.
The district has control to personalize what we want our students to know and do. The standards are a starting point. The teachers create assessment and learning paths to meet them.
They provide a clear path for differentiation based on student needs.
The CCSS are rigorous, internationally-benchmarked English language arts and mathematics standards that are designed to ensure students leave school with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in college and careers.
The CCSS are NOT a national or state curriculum nor are they federally mandated.
They were developed by a team of experts, educators and stakeholders in a bipartisan process led by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. Since 2010, the CCSS have garnered support from business, professional, advocacy, and policy stakeholders, and also have the support of national parent organizations.
The CCSS have dramatically improved the rigor of Wisconsin standards. A 2008 task force of educators, parents, higher education faculty, and business leaders were charged by former State Superintendent Burmaster to examine existing Wisconsin math and English standards and to make recommendations for improving them. This process was facilitated by the American Diploma Project, a non-profit organization responsible for assisting over 30 states examine their state standards for evidence of college and career readiness. At the end of this process in 2008, the task force recommended a complete revision of English Language Arts and mathematics standards to ensure college and career readiness for all Wisconsin students and submitted a number of key features that should be required of any Wisconsin college and career ready standards. The CCSS meet all of them; a conclusion verified through our own state consideration of the drafts of the CCSS, which included stakeholder meetings and a period of open comment on the draft standards. The Thomas B. Fordham Foundation, a national conservative-leaning education think tank, estimates that Wisconsin experienced one of the highest jumps in rigor from old to new standards when we adopted the CCSS.
