California Common Core State Content Standards
The California State Content Standards are designed to encourage the highest achievement of K-12 students by defining the knowledge, concepts, and skills students should acquire in each grade level. SCOE has published a helpful news story answering questions about the Common Core State Standards.
Common Core Leadership Planning Guide—developed by the Consortium for the Implementation of the Common Core State Standards (a collaborative group from CDE, the California Teachers Association, the Association of California School Administrators, the California School Boards Association, CCSESA, and many other organizations).

New Standards Require Changes to State Testing
The new California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System replaces the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) system. Test results help identify gaps in knowledge so students can receive the support they need to succeed.
