Common Core State Standards Initiative
The Common Core State Standards have been developed by educators from around the country and have been adopted by 46 states, including Connecticut, and the District of Columbia. The standards are based on the principle that academic standards in literacy and mathematics should be consistent in every state, relevant to the real world, and reflect the knowledge and skills needed by students to be prepared for college and careers in our global economy.
The implementation of the CCSS will continue to improve educational outcomes for Guilford students. This effort will build on the Principles of Learning, clarify expectations at each grade level, and assess students’ knowledge based on the updated standards.
Professional development for faculty has begun to provide the tools needed to successfully implement the standards and curricula will be aligned to the new standards.
