Common Core State Standards

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are the official curriculum standards for the state of Michigan. You can view web versions of the standards or download PDF versions from their website.

A general introduction to CCSS, with links to MDE's support documents, is on the MDE website

Schools across Michigan are implementing the Common Core Standards in anticipation of the Spring 2015 administration of the new Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium tests.

Please use our Common Core wiki for Powerpoints and handouts from our workshops, links to useful national and state resources, and other information related to the Common Core Standards and the Smarter Balanced Assessments.
