Please join in supporting the success of all students in fulfilling the potential of the California State Standards.
Welcome Parents and Community Members!
You are important partners in supporting young people and their education. We want to expand your understanding of the California State Standards so that you can support young people’s education and help them prepare to shape the future for all of us.
The California 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. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy. These students will create and collaborate as innovators in the future to come.
CDE: Keeping You Informed
The California Department of Education has a variety of sources of information to help parents and other community members to understand our combined journey into California State Standards at the CDE California Standards Information Page.
Smarter Balanced Assessments: What Parents and Students Should Know
From Smarter Balanced website: "With new state standards, students are working harder, thinking more critically, and applying their learning to the real world. To measure these new standards, educators from states using Smarter tests have worked together to develop new, high-quality tests in English and math for grades 3–8 and high school."
