Common Core State Standards

"The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a voluntary, state-led effort

coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA

Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). These standards

define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education

careers so they will graduate from high school able to succeed beyond high school in

post-secondary education and the workforce." Idaho State Department of Education
