Common Core State Standards Initiative
The official site of the CCSS. The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
Smarter Balanced is a state-led consortium developing assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics that are designed to help prepare all students to graduate high school college- and career-ready.
SERP has a number of projects that provide support for Math Teachers and administrators.
The 5X8 Card: The “5 x 8 Card” is the a tool for school principals that targets the intersection of the principal’s experience and the educational purpose of developing the students’ expertise in mathematical practices defined in the CCSS Mathematical Practice Standards.
CA Department of Education
The California Department of Education site. Find information about the standards and the CCSS-related activities taking place in California.
