Top of PageCOMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS
OUSD is embracing the Common Core Standards 

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade.


Since 2010, 45 states, including California have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.

Please see the following videos for a brief overview of the standards.

OUSD has been providing professional development for teachers regarding the CCSS extensively since October of 2012. OUSD teachers worked together to create and execute four major phases of professional development and collaboration related to our CCSS initiative.  These phases included: Orientation, Instructional Practices, Alignment and Assessment.  OUSD teachers have begun the implementation of Common Core standards in their classrooms this year, rather than waiting until the state testing becomes mandatory next year, in 2013-14.

Please check in with your school site's principal for specific information on what the OUSD CCSS Initiative looks like at your student's school!

Additional information on the CCSS can be found on the following links:
