Common Core State Standards Initiative
The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a nationwide model that was adopted in New York State on July 19, 2010. The premise of the initiative is that if each child follows a set of learning standards in each grade (for both Math and ELA), he or she will be prepared for college and career by the time high school is finished.
