Academic Standards, The Common Core...and Preparing for Success
TimeAug. 25, 2012
Academic standards are important. We aim to ensure that all students are prepared for success in college and the workforce. This academic year, we will be introducing even more relevant content and practical exercises into the English Language Arts curricula. In addition to meeting the objectives of the NC Standard Course of Study, we will focus on Common Core Standards, which have been adopted by 48 states. These common standards are informed by the highest state standards from across the country. Students meeting these standards will be prepared for college and entering the workforce.

On June 2, 2010, North Carolina adopted the Common Core State Standards in K-12 Mathematics and K-12 English Language Arts released by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. With the adoption of these state-led education standards, North Carolina is in the first group of states to embrace clear and consistent goals for learning to prepare children for success in college and work.
