Common Core State Standards


The Academic Baseline for Success in College, Careers and Life

The Common Core State Standards ensure that all students have greater opportunities and access to the careers of their choice. We need a K-12 education system that imparts the knowledge and skills most valued by employers and higher education.

The Common Core State Standards focus on fewer concepts in mathematics and English language arts/literacy so that students can learn at greater depth and mastery. The standards depart from the practice of going "a mile wide and an inch deep.

The Common Core State Standards build on the curricular improvements already achieved in Stamford Public Schools over the last several years. Our district is well-positioned for this next level of work.
