Common Core State Standards
Common Core State Standards and MVSD
More about the Common Core
Forty-five states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity have adopted the Common Core State Standards.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are a set of educational standards created in partnership with the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers. In July 2010, the state of NH adopted the Common Core State Standards and embedded them in the NH College and Career Ready Standards.
The purpose of the standards is to create a roadmap for all teachers of what students should know and be able to do. The standards are crafted in a clear progression of knowledge and skills that build from kindergarten through high school. MVSD uses the CCSS as the foundation of our curriculum in english language arts and mathematics.
