Why adapt the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?

The standards establish consistent learning goals for all students. They are relevant to the real world, focusing on the knowledge and skills students will need to succeed in life after high school, in both post-secondary education and a globally competitive workforce.

Parents will know exactly what their children should learn by the end of each grade level and it will be easier for parents, teachers and students to work together toward clearly communicated and defined goals.
