Georgia has adopted the Common Core State Standards along with 47 other states across the nation. The development of national standards for K-12 English Language Arts and Mathematics was initiated by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). These standards provide a consistent framework to prepare students for success in college and career. The standards can be viewed on the Common Core State Standards website www.corestandards.org or on the Georgia Department of Education website www.georgiastandards.org.
