Common Core Update
Currently, there are 43 states that have "adopted" the Common Core standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics. Most of these states are in the process of developing their implementation timelines, reviewing their current state standards against the Common Core to determine if any of the 15% federal guideline changes will be considered, and developing new state assessments to Common Core. Based upon this research and our continual monitoring of the status of these standards being adopted and implemented by state educational departments, EdGate Correlation Services has determined that the Common Core State Standards should continue to be separate from the state-specific curriculum standards.
The target date for implementation of the new assessments is scheduled for the 2014-2015 school year. Until that time, state assessments are tied to the current state educational standards for these subjects.
Many states have developed draft Common Core documents that are under review and not yet finalized. As states make their decision on whether they will make any changes, the EdGate Standards Repository will maintain the current state's standards and also provide access for clients to any states that finalize their draft documents and/or adopt the Common Core as-is without changes.
To date, California, Colorado, and Minnesota did opt for the 15% changes and finalized their documents; whereas the District of Columbia, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin have adopted the Common Core as they are without changes. By purchasing the Common Core K-12 State Standards from the EdGate Standards Repository, you will automatically have access to both standards sets for each state that adopts (i.e. California Standards, and California Common Core Content Standards).
